Web Application Firewall (WAF) testing Framework

Dear Information Security Hero's, I planned to share some tools which really help you while implementing WAF.

Sometime after completing the installation customer will ask "I did not see any attacks, is your WAF working fine ?? "

So, to avoid this kind of question, Use the below tool that enables you to evaluate the security efficacy of your web application security solution Unlike other application scanners, which only check for vulnerabilities, it generates both legitimate traffic and attacks traffic to determine if your security solution stops attacks without blocking valid requests.

Here only providing top tools only...

LightBulb Framework

The framework consists of two main algorithms: GOFA: An active learning algorithm that infers symbolic representations of automata in the standard membership/equivalence query model. Active learning algorithms permit the analysis of filter and sanitizer programs remotely, i.e. given only the ability to query the targeted p Microsoft's WAF Bench (WB) Tool Suits program and observe the output. 

SFADiff: A black-box differential testing algorithm based on Symbolic Finite Automata (SFA) learning Finding differences between programs with similar functionality is an important security problem as such differences can be used for fingerprinting or creating evasion attacks against security software like Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) which are designed to detect malicious inputs to web applications.

Imperva's WAF test Framework 

This has come from one of the reputed OEM, who is the leader in Gartner's WAF-report.

The WAF Testing Framework is licensed under the terms of the Affero General Public License version 3.


Microsoft's WAF Bench (WB) Tool Suits

WAF (Web Application Firewall) Bench tool suits are designed to verify the correctness and measure the performance of WAF.

Automatic WAF correctness testing can relieve developers from the heavy and tedious verifying works. There are two important factors for conducting WAF correctness testing: the testing framework and test cases.

Its a heavy tool needs more dependencies to compare with above-mentioned tools.

My Life as Information security engineer Chapter 1: Tools

  Hi folks, here I am going to share the tools list that I am using in my daily life cycle. NMAP  Nmap (“Network Mapper”) is a free and open-source (license) utility for network discovery and security auditing. Basically, I will use it to discover the open ports and closed ports where I did Port Mapping in firewalls. We can use this in the local network as well as in the WAN network. Also with help of the NSE script, we do multiple things like vulnerability check, exploitation, etc., Ref: CURL and WGET curl   is a tool to transfer data from or to a server, using one of the supported protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, SCP, SFTP, TFTP, DICT, TELNET, LDAP or FILE).

What is IP Obfuscation ? How it's working ? how to use Cuteit tool ?

  What is IP  Obfuscation?     Which is a method to hide or convert a doted format IP address  (e.g.   into an Integer or Hexadecimal value or Octal form by using some mathematical formula. It’s a kind of method to spoof the human eyes and web security services. dot format to Decimal Conversion 👉  [] to translate (172 x256 3 )+(67×256 2 )+(129×256 1 )+(3×256 0 ) =  2890105091 Now you can use  https://2890105091  to access This is one of the ways to do IP  Obfuscation.  The tool  ‘ Cuteit ‘ is  A simple python tool to help you to social engineer, bypass whitelisting firewalls, potentially break regex rules for command-line logging looking for IP addresses and obfuscate cleartext strings to C2 locations within the payload.
