I went through all my ModSecurity Blog posts yesterday, partly to admire myself for blogging consistently for almost 5 years and partly to understand what is that I talked about during this time. While I knew that most of my posts were pretty technical (after all, I did start my new blog to focus on other things) imagine my surprise when I realised I didn't properly cover the one thing this blog is supposed to cover: web application firewalls! The emphasize is on the word "properly": I provided a great deal of technical information but not enough content that would explain why one would deploy a web application firewall and how. This stuff had went into my conference talks and the Web Application Firewall Evaluation Criteria project, but I forgot to discuss the topics here.
In an effort to fix this I am starting a series of blog posts called Web Application Firewall Concepts. Each post will be reasonably brief and cover one aspect of the technology, and I will continually update this post to serve as a table of contents.
