ModSecurity is an open source engine, a WAF (web application firewall) which offers a range of security features and request filtering mechanisms to Apache HTTP Server, NGINX and IIS. It is integrated with the web-server and safeguards applications against possible attacks.
Apart from offering logging convenience, ModSecurity is a great tool for real time monitoring of HTTP traffic for detecting attacks. Here, ModSecurity works like an intrusion detection tool for web applications. It permits you to respond to doubtful occurrences taking place in the web environment.
ModSecurity is also equipped with a Rule Language. This is a programming language which is flexible and easy to use and works well with HTTP transaction data. It is powerful enough to prevent intrusions to your web applications.

Web application traffic is analyzed by the ModSecurity profiler for creation of profiles so that a strong security model can be applied.
Agenda of the webinar encompasses some crucial aspects like anti-evasion techniques, POST payload analysis, compressed content filtering and request filtering. These aspects bring into play functions that work for security of web apps. For instance, before the web server or other modules handle incoming requests, they are analyzed; before evasion techniques are fought against, parameters and paths are also regularised.
