ABSTRACT
In order to protect web sites with various program languages and high throughput efficiently, a web Intrusion Protection System (IPS) based on P2P and reverse proxy architecture was designed and implemented. The P2P based web intrusion protection system has multi web firewall nodes and nodes with same program cooperate with each other under P2P architecture. Some nodes work as net flow allocator and some work as detector and they can convert to each other according to the requirements dynamically. The WAF program has the characteristics of session keeping and load balancing and it can detect messages by using expert library and many plug-in components. The technology of reverse proxy is used for response the web request. Experiments show that the system can effectively prevent attacks form application layer. It is proved more efficient and stable than single node.
