PerlIDS (CGI::IDS) - example application


This example application provides a textarea that will be parsed by the IDS and the scan result will be shown if any attack has been detected.

Two log files are created by the application:

1 filtered_keys.log

Logging all filtered key/value pairs to finetune the whitelist.

2 attacks.log

Logging all attacks with detailed information.

A sample whitelist file is provided in param_whitelist.xml. Please have a look into CGI::IDS for details.
