NGINX is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server and reverse proxy, as well as an IMAP/POP3 proxy server. NGINX is known for its high performance, stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption.
More and more websites rely on NGINX as a performance booster. But it can make applications more secure! By examining GET and POST requests as well as how the application responds, it is possible to filter out illegitimate traffic from legitimate website visitors! Nginx-based proxies/load balancers already have traffic — so they just need the proper tools and modules to analyze it! What will you learn: -- How to detect and block sophisticated hacker attacks by using a variety of WAF for NGINX (I'll cover all the options). -- Some basic techniques of how you can deal with L7 DDoS attacks. --How to stop bots crawling your website.
