Important] Notice of API (Push Notification Function) Specification Changes

Thank you for using learningBOX. LearningBOX will change the API specifications starting with the Ver. 2.19 release. This announcement is an explanatory article for customers who are using API integration. About the API changes Before the change After change Depending on the implementation method, communication may fail. In the case of hard coding, there is a possibility that the notification will be judged as invalid. How to check the validity of PUSH notifications No. 1: Obtain the contents of the transmission. No. 2: Remove the parameter "hash" from the transmitted content and temporarily save it. No.3: Add "secret" to the back of the sent content without changing the order of the parameters. Part 4: After concatenating the parameter values of the sent content with "|", retrieve the hash value using sha256. No.5: Check if the hash value is consistent with the hash value obtained from the transmitted contents. Sample code for PUSH notification validity check /** * PUSH notification validity check * Sample notification content * ------------------------------------------------ * { * 'param1': 'aaa', * 'param2': 'bbb', * 'param3': 'ccc', * 'hash': 'ae12de' * } * ------------------------------------------------ * * Parameters other than hash may be reordered or increased or decreased. */ Example of normal operation $payload = file_get_contents('php://input'); // Get notification contents $payload = json_decode($payload, true); // Array the notification contents $hash = $payload['hash']; // get hash value for verification unset($payload['hash']); // remove hash value for verification from sent content $payload = $payload + ['secret' => 'tatsuno123']; // add the secret key of the recipient after the notification content if($hash === hash('sha256', implode('|', $payload))) { // successful authentication of sent content } else { // content authentication failure } Example of failure $payload = file_get_contents('php://input'); // get notification contents $payload = json_decode($payload, true); // Array the notification content $hash = $payload['hash']; // Get hash value for verification $param1 = $payload['param1']; // get parameter 1 for verification $param2 = $payload['param2']; // get parameter 2 for verification $param3 = $payload['param3']; // get parameter 3 for verification $secret = 'tatsuno123'; // secret key for notification if($hash === hash('sha256', $param1 .

Notice Concerning Security Enhancements Thank you for your continued patronage of our services. As part of our security enhancement efforts, learningBOX will introduce WAF (Web Application Firewall) in the shared environment starting with the Ver2.19 release. In this announcement, we have summarized the concerns after the introduction of WAF. Reasons for Introducing WAF In recent years, cyber attack methods have become more sophisticated, and the time between the discovery of a vulnerability and an attack has become shorter. In order to protect our customers' personal information and services from increasingly sophisticated cyber-attack threats, learningBOX has decided to implement WAF. What is WAF? WAF is a security tool to protect websites by detecting and preventing attacks that exploit web application vulnerabilities. It protects services from attacks by blocking malicious requests before they reach the server. How WAF Works WAF intervenes in the communication between the access source and the web server and uses "signatures" to detect attacks and prevent unauthorized access. When WAF detects an attack, it intercepts the communication and logs it, while at the same time sending a warning message to the access source on behalf of the web server. At the same time, it returns a warning message to the access source on behalf of the Web server. A typical firewall does not check the content of the communication or how it is communicated. Communications that pass through the system's port of entry will reach the web application, even if the content is unauthorized. IDS (Intrusion Detection System) and IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) use signatures to detect unauthorized access, similar to WAF, but their accuracy in detecting unauthorized access to web applications is low and they cannot provide sufficient security measures. WAF will be introduced from learningBOX [Ver2.19] in shared environments. With the introduction of WAF, there is a possibility that the global IP address you are using will be determined to be blocked. Countermeasures when 403Forbidden is displayed If a 403 Forbidden message is displayed on your browser, please wait a while and try accessing the site again. If you are accessing the site via a VPN or other means, accessing the site without a VPN may improve the situation.
