PROJECT IDENTIFICATION
Project Name OWASP AppSensor Project - Detect and Respond to Attacks from Within the Application
Short Project Description The goal of this project is to create the standard and guidance for how an application should detect, log and respond to malicious events. The deliverable for this project will be a framework of information which would be used by an application architect during the design of the system itself. This project would not create a tool or any code. Instead, it will build upon many of the IDS concepts developed in ESAPI and move towards a fully developed Application IDS Framework Standard. For example, when an architect considers the design of their authentication system (or any other critical system) they would reference the AppSensor guidelines on authentication. The AppSensor guidance will indicate what sort of authentication actions need to be logged (failed login attempt, use of multiple user-names from a single IP, high rate of login attempts etc) and what information must be captured (user-name, ip, timestamp etc). Further, the AppSensor guidance will detail how all the events should be handled. Events will have different severities and will be sent to a centralized logging system within the application. This system collect the security events from throughout the application (authorization attacks, business logic attacks, force browsing attempts etc) and will then be able to take appropriate action against the user. This could include locking out an account, generating alerts to sys-admins, shutting down portions of the application, etc. Essentially, my project is defining how an Intrusion Detection System should be designed, configured and built into the code of any custom application. By building the Application Level IDS within the application itself, we are in the best place to capture and respond to all malicious actions performed against the application.
