To control the web request, we use WAF conditions, rules and web access control list. 

Conditions:

It defines AWS WAF to watch for web request that contains - cross-site scripting, IP addresses, Geographical location, size constraints, SQL injection, etc.

Rules:

Combine the condition with rules to precisely target the requests that you want to allow, block or count. There are two types of rules - Regular Rule and Rate Based rule.

  • Regular rule - Use only conditions to target specific requests
  • Rate Based Rule - It has an additional feature to target specific requests.

Web ACL's:

This is the section where you define actions for each rule. There are three actions - allow, block, count.
