Asm doubt

What is the best practice ?


Adding all parameters for application and removing the wildcard parameter from staging and keeping all in enforcement mode ?


Or to keep a hybrid model, adding required parameter and putting them in enforcement mode and keep wildcard parameter in staging ?

  • It depends on your application and its size. Generally speaking you want a tight policy which will ensure maximum protection against attacks. If staging is enabled many attacks will not be blocked! If your application is small-medium then yes, you should whitelist all parameters an enforce everything. This is provided your application never or rarely changes (e.g. OWA, Oracle appls etc). If you are protecting an "agile" application which changes weekly and maybe even daily then hybrid approach is needed
