WAFの検知テスト(WAF detection test)

AWS WAF(F5マネージドルール)が正常に適用されているかどうかをテストする方法を教えてください。


Please tell me how to test whether AWS WAF (F5 Managed Rules) is applied normally.

I want to make sure it is blocked by the WAF.

  • Hi gmt20trisc00

    are you looking for a basic test to verify that the rules are detecting attacks? You could try some proof of concept exploit like appending one of these two examples to your URL.



    /<script>alert("XSS Attack");</script>

    That'll do no harm, but an active WAF should block these requests (or, if not in blocking mode, raise an alert).
