ModSecurity Handbook is the definitive guide to ModSecurity, the popular open source web application firewall. Written by Christian Folini and ModSecurity's original developer, Ivan Ristic, this book will teach you how to monitor activity on your web sites and protect them from attack. Situated between your web sites and the world, web application firewalls provide an additional security layer, monitoring everything that comes in and everything that goes out in real time. They enable you to perform many advanced activities, such as access control, virtual patching, HTTP traffic logging, continuous passive security assessment, and web application hardening. Web application firewalls can be very effective in preventing application security attacks, such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting, remote file inclusion, and others that plague most web sites today.
