Denial of service attack prevention for windows store apps

    Question

  • Hi,

    What preventive measures should I explicitly take for preventing DOS attack for my windows store app. Considering that my service will be hosted in Windows Azure. The service is Web API.

    My service is a http service and we don't have an authN mechanism in place.


    Thanks & Regards Tejaswi Chandrapatla

  • What are you trying to prevent? What do you mean by a denial of service attack against your Windows Store app? Usually one would be more concerned about the server than the client.

    Windows Store apps run isolated and sandboxed to prevent them from harming the system.

  • Are you trying to prevent attacks on the Windows Store app or on the Azure service?

    The Windows Store app forums are specifically about Windows Store apps. For help with Web API and Azure services you'll want to post in the forums for those topics.

  • If there is a mechanism to prevent directly on windows store apps, It could be great if u could share that. 

    Else I will try to push this up to other forums..
