PHP WAF: Intercept and Monitor Application Attacks

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As security breaches increasingly move from operating system originated attacks to application-level attacks, a web application firewall (WAF) is becoming an increasingly indispensable tool in the arsenal of security-conscious website operators and hosts. Tools like ModSecurity provide knowledgeable website and network admins with useful WAF-like capabilities, but what if you are writing an application for large-scale deployment where the install environment is unknown? Integrating WAF-like capabilities directly into your PHP application can provide an additional layer of security that can be difficult for skilled admins to replicate using other methods. With a simple include and a few lines of code, your application can stop a variety of attacks before any potentially sensitive code is executed or a database connection is even made. This presentation will provide you with a skeleton security framework and introduce you to a way to give website owners insights into potential attacks as well as their authorized users' experience.
