Cyber Security Cloud Announced Two New Features for WafCharm: "Notification" and "Reporting"

SOURCE Cyber Security Cloud, Inc.

In response to the addition of AWS WAF's new comprehensive logging functionality, Cyber Security Cloud, Inc. (CSC) has developed and released two new features, "Notification" and "Reporting" for WafCharm, a service for automation of AWS WAF operations using AI & Big Data.

TOKYO, Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Utilizing AWS WAF's New Comprehensive Logging Functionality, Cyber Security Cloud Announced Two New Features for WafCharm: "Notification" and "Reporting". These functions were added to WafCharm with the aim to further improve convenience in terms of false-positive correspondence and system operation.

¦ Background of new feature development
Previously, detection history could only be obtained by sampling and due to restriction, only past 3 hours of the sampling data could be accessed, therefore making it harder to gather information correctly and corresponding to false-positive, etc. To resolve this issue, the new comprehensive logging functionality has been added to enable AWS WAF to acquire all detection logs.

  • Current:    
  • - Retention period of the sample log is up to 3 hours
  • - During the retention period, it is not possible to acquire all detection logs, and only some of the detection logs can be accessed.
  • New:
  • - With the new comprehensive logging functionality, AWS WAF supports full logging of all web requests inspected by the service. Due to this, all detection log acquired by AWS WAF can be accessed.

Users can store these logs in Amazon S3 for compliance and auditing needs as well as use them for debugging and additional forensics. The logs will help users understand why certain rules are triggered and why certain web requests are blocked. For each web request, AWS WAF logs provide raw HTTP/S headers along with information on which AWS WAF rules are triggered. This is useful for troubleshooting custom WAF rules and Managed Rules for AWS WAF.

¦ New features
1. Notification Function
WafCharm automatically sends E-mail notifications of the detected content to the administrator immediately. Due to this, WafCharm users will be able to grasp the blocking status and details of an attack immediately. (The conventional way to check the blocking status is by accessing the detection history on AWS console.)
? In the future, CSC plans to further update this function by adding SNS notification, etc.

2. Monthly Reporting Function
WafCharm will generate a monthly report of the detection status per WafCharm account or per Web ACL. The monthly report includes total no. of detections, attackers' IP addresses, ranking of attack type, source and country.
