web2wall : Web Application/Services Firewall - IHTTPModule for Web 2.0 application

Microsoft‘s .Net framework includes two interfaces - IHTTPModule and IHTTPHandler. These two interfaces can be leveraged to provide application-level defense customized to application-level, folder-level or variable-level. This can act as the first line of defense, before any incoming request touches the Web application source code level. This is Web application defense at the gates, for the .Net framework on IIS.

Web2wall is a simple binary module which can be loaded in your Web 2.0 applications. You can defend your application layer code by using regex patterns; this can help in filtering XML and JSON streams. This tool is in beta and more features will be added with time. We will resolve bugs to make the module much more robust.
