File mod_security2.conf of Package apache2-mod_security2

# Dear administrator/webmaster,
#
# Welcome to /etc/apache2/conf.d/mod_security2.conf, the starting point for
# the configuration of mod_security2.
# Please read this text down to line 63 for information about activation
# and configuration of the mod_security2 apache module.
#
# To activate mod_security2, its apache module must be configured to be
# loaded when apache starts. The mod_security2 apache module depends on 
# the module mod_unique_id to be able to run. This means that both apache
# modules must be activated/loaded when apache starts.

# Change the configuration to load these two modules by adding the two
# module names "security2" and "unique_id" to the variable APACHE_MODULES
# in /etc/sysconfig/apache2 . You can do that manually, or use the tools
# a2enmod (enable apache module) and a2dismod (disable apache module). 
# These two tools expect the name of the module without the leading 
# "mod_" as an argument!
#
# note: /etc/sysconfig/apache2 is evaluated upon apache start by the apache
# start script /usr/sbin/start_apache2 . Changes in APACHE_MODULES are then 
# visible in /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/loadmodule.conf, changed by the start
# script.
#
# example for the use of a2enmod/a2dismod:
#
# a2enmod security2		# enable module security2
# a2enmod unique_id		# enable module unique_id
#
# a2dismod security2		# disable
# a2dismod unique_id		# %

#
# This file /etc/apache2/conf.d/mod_security2.conf makes some basic
# configuration settings, then loads
#   /usr/share/apache2-mod_security2/rules/modsecurity_crs_10_setup.conf
# which is the baseline for the rules that can be loaded later.
#
# Afterwards, all files named *.conf in /etc/apache2/mod_security2.d are read.
# For the rules you wish to apply, place a symlink to the rules file there.
#
# About the rules; The OWASP ModSecurity Core Rule Set version 2.2.9
# is contained in this package, a splendid set of rules made to provide for a
# decent basic and even advanced protection. The rules files are contained
# in the directory /usr/share/apache2-mod_security2/rules/.
#
# Example (use all of the basic rules that come with the package):
#
# cd /etc/apache2/mod_security2.d
# for i in /usr/share/apache2-mod_security2/rules/base_rules/mod*; do
#   ln -s $i .
# done
#
# At last, simply restart apache:
#   rcapache2 restart
#
# In doubt, please consult the valuable online documentation on the project's
# website, which is the authoritative source for documentation.
# For offline reading, the webpages for the Reference Guide and the FAQ are

<IfModule mod_security2.c>

# -- Rule engine initialization ----------------------------------------------

# Enable ModSecurity, attaching it to every transaction. Use detection
# only to start with, because that minimises the chances of post-installation
# disruption.
#
SecRuleEngine DetectionOnly


# -- Request body handling ---------------------------------------------------

# Allow ModSecurity to access request bodies. If you don't, ModSecurity
# won't be able to see any POST parameters, which opens a large security
# hole for attackers to exploit.
#
SecRequestBodyAccess On


# Enable XML request body parser.
# Initiate XML Processor in case of xml content-type
#
SecRule REQUEST_HEADERS:Content-Type "text/xml" \
     "id:'200000',phase:1,t:none,t:lowercase,pass,nolog,ctl:requestBodyProcessor=XML"


# Maximum request body size we will accept for buffering. If you support
# file uploads then the value given on the first line has to be as large
# as the largest file you are willing to accept. The second value refers
# to the size of data, with files excluded. You want to keep that value as
# low as practical.
#
SecRequestBodyLimit 13107200
SecRequestBodyNoFilesLimit 131072

# Store up to 128 KB of request body data in memory. When the multipart
# parser reachers this limit, it will start using your hard disk for
# storage. That is slow, but unavoidable.
#
SecRequestBodyInMemoryLimit 131072

# What do do if the request body size is above our configured limit.
# Keep in mind that this setting will automatically be set to ProcessPartial
# when SecRuleEngine is set to DetectionOnly mode in order to minimize
# disruptions when initially deploying ModSecurity.
#
SecRequestBodyLimitAction Reject

# Verify that we've correctly processed the request body.
# As a rule of thumb, when failing to process a request body
# you should reject the request (when deployed in blocking mode)
# or log a high-severity alert (when deployed in detection-only mode).
#
SecRule REQBODY_ERROR "!@eq 0" \
"id:'200001', phase:2,t:none,log,deny,status:400,msg:'Failed to parse request body.',logdata:'%{reqbody_error_msg}',severity:2"

# By default be strict with what we accept in the multipart/form-data
# request body. If the rule below proves to be too strict for your
# environment consider changing it to detection-only. You are encouraged
# _not_ to remove it altogether.

# -- Response body handling --------------------------------------------------

# Allow ModSecurity to access response bodies. 
# You should have this directive enabled in order to identify errors
# and data leakage issues.
# 
# Do keep in mind that enabling this directive does increases both
# memory consumption and response latency.
#
SecResponseBodyAccess On

# Which response MIME types do you want to inspect? You should adjust the
# configuration below to catch documents but avoid static files
# (e.g., images and archives).
#
SecResponseBodyMimeType text/plain text/html text/xml

# Buffer response bodies of up to 512 KB in length.
SecResponseBodyLimit 524288

# What happens when we encounter a response body larger than the configured
# limit? By default, we process what we have and let the rest through.
# That's somewhat less secure, but does not break any legitimate pages.
#
SecResponseBodyLimitAction ProcessPartial


# -- Filesystem configuration ------------------------------------------------

# The location where ModSecurity stores temporary files (for example, when
# it needs to handle a file upload that is larger than the configured limit).
# 
# This default setting is chosen due to all systems have /tmp available however, 
# this is less than ideal. It is recommended that you specify a location that's private.
#
SecTmpDir /tmp/

# The location where ModSecurity will keep its persistent data.  This default setting 
# is chosen due to all systems have /tmp available however, it
# too should be updated to a place that other users can't access.
#
SecDataDir /tmp/


# -- File uploads handling configuration -------------------------------------

# The location where ModSecurity stores intercepted uploaded files. This
# location must be private to ModSecurity. You don't want other users on
# the server to access the files, do you?
#
#SecUploadDir /opt/modsecurity/var/upload/

# By default, only keep the files that were determined to be unusual
# in some way (by an external inspection script). For this to work you
# will also need at least one file inspection rule.
#
#SecUploadKeepFiles RelevantOnly

# Uploaded files are by default created with permissions that do not allow
# any other user to access them. You may need to relax that if you want to
# interface ModSecurity to an external program (e.g., an anti-virus).
#
#SecUploadFileMode 0600


# -- Debug log configuration -------------------------------------------------

# The default debug log configuration is to duplicate the error, warning
# and notice messages from the error log.
#
#SecDebugLog /var/log/apache2/modsec_debug.log
#SecDebugLogLevel 3

# -- Audit log configuration -------------------------------------------------

# Log the transactions that are marked by a rule, as well as those that
# trigger a server error (determined by a 5xx or 4xx, excluding 404,  
# level response status codes).
#
SecAuditEngine RelevantOnly
SecAuditLogRelevantStatus "^(?:5|4(?!04))"

# Log everything we know about a transaction.
SecAuditLogParts ABIJDEFHZ

# Use a single file for logging. This is much easier to look at, but
# assumes that you will use the audit log only ocassionally.
#
SecAuditLogType Serial
SecAuditLog /var/log/apache2/modsec_audit.log

# Specify the path for concurrent audit logging.
#SecAuditLogStorageDir /opt/modsecurity/var/audit/


# -- Miscellaneous -----------------------------------------------------------

# Use the most commonly used application/x-www-form-urlencoded parameter
# separator. There's probably only one application somewhere that uses
# something else so don't expect to change this value.
#
SecArgumentSeparator &

# Settle on version 0 (zero) cookies, as that is what most applications
# use. Using an incorrect cookie version may open your installation to
# evasion attacks (against the rules that examine named cookies).
#
SecCookieFormat 0

# Specify your Unicode Code Point.
# This mapping is used by the t:urlDecodeUni transformation function
# to properly map encoded data to your language. Properly setting
# these directives helps to reduce false positives and negatives.
