WAFW00F identifies and fingerprints Web Application Firewall (WAF) products.

Project Description
# WAFW00F

WAFW00F identifies and fingerprints Web Application Firewall (WAF) products.

## How does it work?

To do its magic, WAFW00F does the following:

- Sends a _normal_ HTTP request and analyses the response; this identifies a
number of WAF solutions
- If that is not successful, it sends a number of (potentially malicious) HTTP
requests and uses simple logic to deduce which WAF it is
- If that is also not successful, it analyses the responses previously
returned and uses another simple algorithm to guess if a WAF or security
solution is actively responding to our attacks

For further details, check out the source code on the main site,
[github.com/sandrogauci/wafw00f](https://github.com/sandrogauci/wafw00f).

## What does it detect?

It detects a number of WAFs. To view which WAFs it is able to detect run
WAFW00F with the `-l` option. At the time of writing the output is as follows:

$ ./wafw00f -l

## How do I use it?

For help please make use of the `--help` option. The basic usage is to pass it
a URL as an argument. Example:

$./wafw00f https://www.ibm.com/

^ ^
_ __ _ ____ _ __ _ _ ____
///7/ /.' \ / __////7/ /,' \ ,' \ / __/
| V V // o // _/ | V V // 0 // 0 // _/
|_n_,'/_n_//_/ |_n_,' \_,' \_,'/_/
<
...'
