Hey,

 

I was wondering if someone here could give me a quick run down on how a WAF operates basically and also what some of the top products out there are?

 

Thanks

That's a very generic question. Can you provide more details? For example, for what do you plan to use it? WAFs are not for home usage.

Its more for information purposes. I am trying to compile some information together to get a better understanding of them So anything generic would do. Such as what it looks for in the traffic to block attacks, negative impacts of performance and a couple of top products I could have a browse of.

In that case, take a look at OWASP's entry: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Web_Application_Firewall
