This video is part 1 of a step by step hands on guide on Azure Web Application Firewall or WAF.
We will look into the WAF solution from Azure offering and perform the provisioning of the solution together with configuration and testing.
We will also take a look at detection mode vs prevention mode, firewall rule sets, migration of waf policies, create our own custom rules and turn on logging and diagnostics.
How WAF provides centralized protection of your web applications from common exploits and vulnerabilities such as SQL injection attacks, cross site scripting attacks, command injection, HTTP request smuggling, HTTP response splitting and remote file inclusion.
Part 2 of this video (to be released shortly) covers the WAF logging and diagnostics piece using Application Gateway Analytics and Log Analytics.
