what is this project?
Name: OWASP NAXSI Project (Nginx Anti Xss Sql Injection) (home page)
  • Naxsi is an open source, high performance, low rules maintenance, Web Application Firewall module for Nginx, the infamous web server and reverse-proxy.
  • Its goal is to help people securing their web applications against attacks like SQL Injections, Cross Site Scripting, Cross Site Request Forgery, Local & Remote file inclusions.
  • The difference with most WAF (Web Application Firewalls) out there is that it does not rely upon signatures to detect and block attacks. It uses a simpler model where, instead of trying to detect "known" attacks, it detects unexpected characters in the HTTP requests/arguments.
  • Each kind of unusual character will increase the score of the request. If the request reaches a score considered "too high", the request will be denied, and the user will be redirected to a "forbidden" page. Yes, it works somewhat like a spam system.
