Abstract

Due to the increasing spread of the Internet and information systems, thus causing web applications, the risks and associated threats in this field have also increased. In recent years, several different websites such as government sites and non-government sites have been targeted by penetration attacks and illegal hacking activity. The attacks carried out often result in significant financial and credibility losses along with harming organizational and even national interests. Given the magnitude and complexity of cyberattacks and due to the diversity of web application structures, the need to have comprehensive and effective solutions to prevent or mitigate the negative effects of such attacks is very important. One of the latest tools to prevent infiltration and attacks on websites is a web application firewall (WAF), which allows security policies to be enforced between the user and the web application. In this journal, five simulations of cyberattacks have been carried out to determine how effective the use of WAF is in preventing and minimizing the risk of cyberattacks. In conclusion, WAF can block all five simulated attacks instantly.
