On the Ibuildings techPortal site today Boy Baukema looks at PHPIDS, the PHP intrusion detection system and how it can start to help protect you and your application feel a little safer.
Just a reminder to everyone who is interested in WebAppSec and hasn’t done so already to try PHPIDS, the Intrusion Detection System. [...] Installing PHPIDS is easy. Just download the latest version in your preferred format and then review the the FAQ for sample code on how to install it.
He does warn on one thing though - the system is a basic intrusion detection system and is not as complex as other detection tools. There were some complains he had about what it thought were intrusions and recommends that you only have it pointing to the external side of your application to cause less hassle in the long run.
