A WAF, or web application firewall, helps protect web applications by filtering and monitoring HTTP traffic between a web application and the Internet. In this course, we're going to start by understanding the basics of Web Application Firewalls and how they work.
We're predominantly going to focus on ModSecurity, an open source, cross-platform WAF engine, and also look at the OWASP ModSecurity Core Rule Set. We're also going to get hands-on by creating custom rules to optimize and scale a WAF.
Finally, we're going to look at logging & monitoring WAF for visualization and more. All of our video lessons are accompanied by hands-on labs based off real-world security scenarios. This ensures the most true-to-life security training on Web Application Firewalls.
