  • the resources that are protected
  • the content to send back to leeching websites
  • what websites are allowed to reference your content

Benefits

Reduces undesired bandwidth and resource usage resulting from other websites leeching off of your content.

Requirements

ASP.NET 2.0 on IIS5, IIS6, or IIS7. IIS7 required for maximum functionality / ease of deployment.
