AWS Web Application Firewall Blog

Ensure advanced security for Web Apps and API through effective implementation of AWS WAF Services

AWS WAF (Web Application Firewall) is a robust security tool that helps protect web applications and API from external threats like SQL injection and cross site scripting attacks. It consists of a set of rules that control access to the applications based on the IP addresses, geographic location, or user-agent strings.

AWS WAF helps in the effective monitoring of HTTP and HTTPS requests that are forwarded to the web application infrastructure. 

AWS WAF also provides logging and monitoring capabilities, allowing customers to review and analyze traffic patterns and security events to identify potential security threats and take appropriate actions.

Common threats faced by API and web applications.

Web applications and API are vulnerable to various kinds of attacks that lead to unprecedented downtime, privacy intrusion, or high bandwidth usage. The most common web attacks include:

  • DDoS attacks: This involves flooding a web application or API with traffic leading to application crashing or becoming unresponsive.
  • SQL injection: The process of inserting malicious SQL statements into a web application’s input fields by attackers to gain access to sensitive information stored in the database is known as SQL injection. 
  • Cross-site scripting: This involves injecting malicious scripts into a web page or API response which is then executed by the victim’s browser. These scripts can rewrite the content of the HTML pages.   

AWS helps protect web applications and API from typical vulnerabilities by allowing the users to set rules to monitor web traffic and help minimize web attacks. 

Steps to configure AWS WAF to protect web resources

  • Start by defining your security requirements, determine which resources you need to protect and the type of attacks that you want to secure your applications from.
  • Create a web ACL (Access Control List) which consists of a set of rules to block traffic from accessing the web application. 
  • The next step involves configuring a set of rules to protect web applications. AWS WAF consists of pre-configured rules that protect web applications against common attacks. This set of rules can be customized according to specific needs. 
  • Next define the conditions when the rule needs to be triggered. These conditions comprise of expressions that specify the attributes of the web requests, such as the IP address of the client or the type of the browser being used.
  • Finally, by integrating the Web ACL with the CloudFront distribution, API Gateway, or Application Load Balancer, you can deploy it to your web application.

Benefits of AWS WAF:

AWS WAF plays a major role in protecting your website against web attacks based on your specific criteria. The characteristics of web requests such as the following can be used to define specific criteria:

  • Requests originating from IP addresses.
  • The country from where the requests originate.
  • Header value of the requests.
  • The strings are included in requests, either specifically or by matching regular expression (regex) patterns.
  • Length of requests.
  • SQL injection that implies malicious SQL code.
  • Cross-site scripting that includes malicious script.
  • Rules that allow, block, or count web requests that meet certain criteria. A rule can also be configured to block or count web requests that meet the specified criteria but exceed a specified number of requests in a 5-minute period as well.
  • Rules that can be reused for multiple web applications.
  • A set of managed rule groups from AWS and AWS Marketplace sellers.
  • An analysis of real-time metrics and sample web requests.
  • Implementation of AWS WAF API for Automated administration.

Features of AWS WAF for robust protection against web attacks
