ISD - How to guard against a brute force attack?

Post by qt_ky »

In ISD, when you have a DataStage job set as the operation, how can one guard against a brute force attack?

I would imagine a brute force attack is where a hacker codes a program to cycle through all possible web service input values, by going in order or randomly, until the web service returns some useful data.

I am looking for brainstorming ideas that go beyond requiring authentication. For instance, some web sites only allow 5 sample requests from a given IP address per day (but ISD does not have access to the requestor's IP address). Are there any additional ways to protect an ISD application from such an attack?
