The aim of this project is to provide effective real-time Web application security. Web which was once supposed to be a simple document exchange mechanism, has now become imperative and ubiquitous. Information flows are increasingly embedded into Web applications, making them extremely valuable, thus an attractive target for hackers and necessitates protection. Existing security solutions fail to provide comprehensive level of security.
SWAF, a Semantic based Web Application Firewall, introduces an innovative concept of utilizing semantics for detecting and preventing attacks against Web applications. It is a PCI compliant cutting edge technology capable of performing real-time content filtering on the basis of rules generated using application, protocol and attacks semantics. The system significantly improves attack detection, thus providing protection against known and unknown attacks. It is engineered to deliver performance and efficiency.
