Basic usage

If there are not enought functionality of your frontend server, like Nginx request limits, and you want to customize detection of fraud requests, this library is for you.


$detector = new \Sokil\FraudDetector\Detector();
    // Configure unique user identifier like session id or track id or user ip.
    // This key defines scope of checking. It may limit check on concrete request, by session or globally
    // by user. So you can set key as concatenation of different parameters, e.g. $_SERVER['REQUEST_URE'] . session_id().
    // You can add few processors which execute different checks.
    // Processors may check request from proxy, existance of user in blacklist, etc.
    // This processor check if number of requests reached.
    ->declareProcessor('requestRate', function($processor, $detector) {
        /* @var $processor \Sokil\FraudDetector\Processor\RequestRateProcessor */
        /* @var $detector \Sokil\FraudDetector\Processor\Detector */
            // Limit set as 5 requests for one second.
            // Collector used to store stat of requests
                'memcached', // collector type
                'requestRate', // namespace
                5, // requests
                1, // time interval in seconds
                function($collector) {
                    /* @var $collector \Sokil\FraudDetector\Collector\MemcachedCollector */
                    $memcached = new \Memcached();
                    $memcached->addServer('', 11211);
    ->onCheckPassed(function() use($status) {
        // do something on success request
    ->onCheckFailed(function() use($status) {
        // do something if limits reached
        die('Request limits reached. Please, try again later');

Custom processors

You can write your own processor. It must extend \Sokil\FraudDetector\AbstractProcessor class. Just register your processor's namespace and configure it:


$detector = new \Sokil\FraudDetector\Detector();
    ->declareProcessor('customProcessor', function($processor) {});

All processorts seeking among registered namespaces according to priority of their registration.
