I need to know F5 AWAF can use the data mask feature with layer2 transparent?

AdvWAF can mask certain data in an HTTP transaction at layer 7. Think of payload data such as user credentials or other information that a client passes to a web application. What are you trying to mask?

Thanks, Erik. It supports layer2 and layer3 deployment, right?

If I understand your question the answer is yes, BIG-IP supports layer 2 and layer 3. Advanced WAF only secures HTTP at layer 7. Does that make sense?
