Intrusion detection and prevention module for Apache
'Mod_security' is an intrusion detection and prevention module for Apache Web servers. Its purpose is to protect vulnerable applications by detecting and (optionally) rejecting attacks. In addition to request filtering (using regex), it can create Web application audit logs. Unlike other similar projects, Mod_security can analyse POST payloads.
