Overview: –

ModSecurity, sometimes called Modsec, is a popular Open-source Web application firewall (WAF). Originally designed as a module for the Apache HTTP Server, it has evolved to provide an array of Hypertext Transfer Protocol request and response filtering capabilities along with other security features across a number of different platforms including Apache HTTP Server, Microsoft IIS and NGINX. It is a free software released under the Apache license 2.0.

ModSecurity’s Open Source availability has resulted in it becoming one of the world’s most popular Web application firewalls. The platform itself provides a rule configuration language known as ‘SecRules’ for real-time monitoring, logging, and filtering of Hypertext Transfer Protocol communications based on user-defined rules.
