■ About AWS WAF
AWS WAF is a Web Application Firewall provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that helps protect web applications from common web exploits that could affect application availability, compromise security, or consume excessive resources. With AWS WAF, you can control which traffic to allow or block to the web applications by specifying customizable web security rules.
■ About AWS WAF update
The AWS WAF provided by AWS has undergone a major update * on November 25, 2019. With the introduction of the WAF capacity unit (WCU), the limit of 10 rules has been lifted and now more rules can be introduced.
In addition, the introduction of the "or" operator makes it easy to create rules for various detection patterns, and it has been updated to a WAF that is easy for customers to use.
The existing AWS WAF has been renamed to “AWS WAF Classic” and can still be used. Customers already using AWS WAF Classic can also migrate to new AWS WAF.
■ Background of updated Managed Rules
So far, Cyber Security Cloud has been providing "Cyber Security Cloud Managed Rules for AWS WAF -HighSecurity OWASP Set-" for AWS WAF Classic in the AWS marketplace. Along with this, CSC has developed Managed Rules for the new AWS WAF.
Also, CSC has already started providing new Managed Rules in line with the launch of new AWS WAF.
As a result, customers using the updated AWS WAF can use the new Cyber Security Cloud Managed Rules, allowing them to easily build a robust security environment.
The name of the managed rule for AWS WAF Classic, which has been provided so far, has been renamed and continues to be provided as "Cyber Security Cloud Managed Rules for AWS WAF Classic -OWASP Set-". Existing customers can continue to use it.
