OWASP AppSensor project defines a conceptual framework and methodology that offers prescriptive guidance to implement application intrusion detection and automated response. The reference implementation allows developers to use these powerful concepts in existing applications and is provided under an MIT open-source licence.
Version 2.1.0 includes additional execution modes, additional emitters, enhanced documentation, a Maven upgrade dependency versions, and Spring Security integration. Additionally two demonstration applications have been added. The first example example application illustrates how to use AppSensor in local mode with the Spring Security integration. The second example shows the use of AppSensor for something other than application layer IDS — in this case, as an exception tracker.
The code can be downloaded from GitHub.
John is now hoping to move onto creating a user interface (UI) for the reference implementation, and is seeking feedback on the UI architecture and design. Please contribute your ideas by adding comments this week.
