Blind WAF identification tool

Project description

Build Status Python 2.x|3.x License

identYwaf is an identification tool that can recognize web protection type (i.e. WAF) based on blind inference. Blind inference is being done by inspecting responses provoked by a set of predefined offensive (non-destructive) payloads, where those are used only to trigger the web protection system in between (e.g. http://<host>?aeD0oowi=1 AND 2>1). Currently it supports more than 80 different protection products (e.g. aeSecure, Airlock, CleanTalk, CrawlProtect, Imunify360, MalCare, ModSecurity, Palo Alto, SiteGuard, UrlScan, Wallarm, WatchGuard, Wordfence, etc.), while the knowledge-base is constantly growing.


For more information you can check slides for a talk “Blind WAF identification” held at Sh3llCON 2019 (Santander / Spain).


You can use pip to install and/or upgrade the identYwaf to latest (PyPI) version with:
