Safety in the Cloud(s): 'Vaporizing' the Web Application Firewall to Secure Cloud Computing
Source: art of defence
Cloud computing was not designed for security, although organizations such as Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) are making great strides in helping the industry solve the myriad security problems confronting cloud computing. The benchmark guidelines established by the CSA in the document, Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing, is a great first step. This white paper is intended to pick up where the CSA guide left off in terms of defining what a distributed Web Application Firewall (dWAF) should look like in order to meet the standards set within the CSA document. It includes recommendations and practical use-cases based on Art of Defence's own patent-pending dWAF technology.
