http header x-wsb-msisdn-content-filter

5 replies [Last post]

Hi all,

At the risk of being slightly off-topic, how common and reliable is the 'x-
wsb-msisdn-content-filter' header in http requests over wap?

The value of this header appears to be the users phone number in msisdn
format - which would be lovely to use for securing applications.

Or are there any other headers that would contain the users telephone
number?

cheers

I am not aware of any list available about this (which operators use WAP
proxy and add the MSISDN field in the requests coming from the phones).
So you cannot rely on getting this always.
Sorry.
Also you have to remember that some of the phones support WiFi, and if
the phone connects through that, the requests do not use the operator
network at all.

Hi Harti,

Which network are you using? We had tried to get this header long back
but without success. We finally gave up our attempts at getting this
header. I am keen to know which network is sending this header.

Thanks,
Dhawal

Some WAP proxies add MSISDN info in the request, some don't.
Also some connections to your server will come directly (with no WAP
proxy in between)

So this is not a reliable way to securing applications.

This occurs at least on the Vodafone UK network. I'm not sure if this is
actually a wap proxy - I though it was a proper internet apn.

However Vodafone use a "X-treme Mobility Gateway"* for some proxying http://
www.724.com/news/details250.asp which might be why the msisdn header is
getting through.

I think you can tell that you're coming through this proxy by the header

'via' : 'HTTP/1.1 ldgwsl21 (XMG 724Solutions HTG XMG-31_VODAFONE_M3_B015
20060304.165249)'
'x-wsb-msisdn-content-filter' : '447919xxxxxx'

*the mis-spelling of 'extreme' is almost as bad as the mis-spelling of
'Vodaphone'....
