Trying to use phoenix as a web application firewall to block DDOS like attacks. is it advisable to write a WAF using phoenix? else, what should be fronting phoenix as a firewall? i cant use iptables because i would like to block bad / missed IPs from cloudflare. it’s already fronted by cloudflare but cloudflare doesnt block everything.
i’m totally newbie to erlang / phoenix / elixir etc. since it’s running concurrently, how do i ensure that the ip gotten is blocked specifically? meaning, can i specifically route ip to process? or i cant? or i shouldnt?
