IP Reputation


Introduction

The IP Reputation Classification Package.

The IPR (IP Reputation Classification) package analyzes IP addresses (given as IPv4 or IPv6), and returns matching categories and corresponding category values. The classification result helps to define whether a given IP address has a good or bad reputation.

The results can be used to block unwanted connections to or from IP addresses with a bad reputation.

The IPR classification returns a set of matched categories and corresponding values. The following categories are currently supported:

In future versions the following categories may also be supported:

The interpretation of the value for a category depends on the category type. If the category has associated enumeration items, the category value will be an enumeration value, otherwise the category value will be an integer.

An enumeration value refers to a unique enumerable object. Each enumerable object has a localized name and id. Enumeration objects are currently only supported for the Geo Location category. Examples of enumerable objects would be specific Geo Locations, eg "Greenland", "Western Sahara".

If the category has no associated enumeration items (for example, Spam), the category value will be an integer. The value will lie in the range 0 - 100, and denotes a percentage value reputation for the particular catgegory.

An instance of the package must first be created using dca_ipr::IprClassification::create().

IP addresses can be classified using the dca_ipr::IprClassifier class.

A dca_ipr::Ip object must first be created with a given IP address.

The IprClassifer analyzes the provided data and returns a classification as a dca_ipr::IprClassificationResults object.

The IPR classification requires a connection to a IPR signature database.

For enumeration purposes a dca_ipr::IprCategoriesInfo class can be used. It can be obtained from the IprClassification class.
