This iRule illustrates how to scrub out Credit Card Numbers from HTTP traffic using a STREAM profile.

This example uses similar logic to scrub out credit card numbers as the CreditCardScrubber rule. Instead of collecting the HTTP response payloads, it uses the stream filter to replace the strings inline. This should be more efficient than buffering the payload with the HTTP::collect command.

There is a list of file extensions defined in RULE_INIT. This allows the administrator to restrict the responses to check for credit card numbers in.

It requires a blank stream profile and a custom HTTP profile with Chunking set to Rechunk if you change the response content length. If you wanted to avoid rechunking responses, you could dynamically replace the found credit card number string with as many X's as the length of the found string in the STREAM_MATCHED event using the STREAM::replace command.

Code :

   # This regex defines what strings are considered a credit card.  Wrap the regex in curly braces.
