PHPFreaks.com:
Protecting php applications with PHPIDS
December 22, 2008 @ 08:49:42

On the PHPFreaks.com website there's a new article looking at one way to help protect your website from those evil doers out there looking to cause you and your data harm - PHP-IDS.

PHPIDS (PHP-Intrusion Detection System) is a simple to use, well structured, fast and state-of-the-art security layer for your PHP based web application. The IDS neither strips, sanitizes nor filters any malicious input, it simply recognizes when an attacker tries to break your site and reacts in exactly the way you want it to. [...] In a nutshell PHPIDS is an advanced intrusion detection system written with performance on a large scale in mind. The basic installation and configuration is pretty straight forward.

They (briefly) step you through the installation and configuration of the tool and provide a sample script to get the ball rolling - a file that can be auto_prepended to all scripts run on your Apache server to filter and log incoming requests.
