Public Method CreateRateBasedRule(CreateRateBasedRuleRequest)

Creates a RateBasedRule. The RateBasedRule contains a RateLimit, which specifies the maximum number of requests that AWS WAF allows from a specified IP address in a five-minute period. The RateBasedRule also contains the IPSet objects, ByteMatchSet objects, and other predicates that identify the requests that you want to count or block if these requests exceed the RateLimit.

If you add more than one predicate to a RateBasedRule, a request not only must exceed the RateLimit, but it also must match all the specifications to be counted or blocked. For example, suppose you add the following to a RateBasedRule:

  • An IPSet that matches the IP address 192.0.2.44/32

  • A ByteMatchSet that matches BadBot in the User-Agent header

Further, you specify a RateLimit of 15,000.

You then add the RateBasedRule to a WebACL and specify that you want to block requests that meet the conditions in the rule. For a request to be blocked, it must come from the IP address 192.0.2.44 and the User-Agent header in the request must contain the value BadBot. Further, requests that match these two conditions must be received at a rate of more than 15,000 requests every five minutes. If both conditions are met and the rate is exceeded, AWS WAF blocks the requests. If the rate drops below 15,000 for a five-minute period, AWS WAF no longer blocks the requests.

As a second example, suppose you want to limit requests to a particular page on your site. To do this, you could add the following to a RateBasedRule:

  • A ByteMatchSet with FieldToMatch of URI

  • A PositionalConstraint of STARTS_WITH

  • A TargetString of login

Further, you specify a RateLimit of 15,000.

By adding this RateBasedRule to a WebACL, you could limit requests to your login page without affecting the rest of your site.

To create and configure a RateBasedRule, perform the following steps:

  1. Create and update the predicates that you want to include in the rule. For more information, see CreateByteMatchSet, CreateIPSet, and CreateSqlInjectionMatchSet.

  2. Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of a CreateRule request.

  3. Submit a CreateRateBasedRule request.

You use an IPSet to specify which web requests you want to allow or block based on the IP addresses that the requests originated from. For example, if you're receiving a lot of requests from one or a small number of IP addresses and you want to block the requests, you can create an IPSet that specifies those IP addresses, and then configure AWS WAF to block the requests.

To create and configure an IPSet, perform the following steps:

  1. Submit a CreateIPSet request.

  2. Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of an UpdateIPSet request.

  3. Submit an UpdateIPSet request to specify the IP addresses that you want AWS WAF to watch for.

When you update an IPSet, you specify the IP addresses that you want to add and/or the IP addresses that you want to delete. If you want to change an IP address, you delete the existing IP address and add the new one.

For more information about how to use the AWS WAF API to allow or block HTTP requests, see the AWS WAF Developer Guide.

Public Method UpdateIPSet(UpdateIPSetRequest)

Inserts or deletes IPSetDescriptor objects in an IPSet. For each IPSetDescriptor object, you specify the following values:

  • Whether to insert or delete the object from the array. If you want to change an IPSetDescriptor object, you delete the existing object and add a new one.

  • The IP address version, IPv4 or IPv6.

  • The IP address in CIDR notation, for example, 192.0.2.0/24 (for the range of IP addresses from 192.0.2.0 to 192.0.2.255) or 192.0.2.44/32 (for the individual IP address 192.0.2.44).

AWS WAF supports /8, /16, /24, and /32 IP address ranges for IPv4, and /24, /32, /48, /56, /64 and /128 for IPv6. For more information about CIDR notation, see the Wikipedia entry Classless Inter-Domain Routing.

Public Method UpdateIPSetAsync(UpdateIPSetRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateIPSet operation.

Public Method UpdateRateBasedRule(UpdateRateBasedRuleRequest)

Inserts or deletes Predicate objects in a rule and updates the RateLimit in the rule.

Each Predicate object identifies a predicate, such as a ByteMatchSet or an IPSet, that specifies the web requests that you want to block or count. The RateLimit specifies the number of requests every five minutes that triggers the rule.

If you add more than one predicate to a RateBasedRule, a request must match all the predicates and exceed the RateLimit to be counted or blocked. For example, suppose you add the following to a RateBasedRule:

  • An IPSet that matches the IP address 192.0.2.44/32

  • A ByteMatchSet that matches BadBot in the User-Agent header

Further, you specify a RateLimit of 15,000.

You then add the RateBasedRule to a WebACL and specify that you want to block requests that satisfy the rule. For a request to be blocked, it must come from the IP address 192.0.2.44 and the User-Agent header in the request must contain the value BadBot. Further, requests that match these two conditions much be received at a rate of more than 15,000 every five minutes. If the rate drops below this limit, AWS WAF no longer blocks the requests.

As a second example, suppose you want to limit requests to a particular page on your site. To do this, you could add the following to a RateBasedRule:

  • A ByteMatchSet with FieldToMatch of URI

  • A PositionalConstraint of STARTS_WITH

  • A TargetString of login

Further, you specify a RateLimit of 15,000.

By adding this RateBasedRule to a WebACL, you could limit requests to your login page without affecting the rest of your site.

Public Method UpdateRateBasedRuleAsync(UpdateRateBasedRuleRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateRateBasedRule operation.

Public Method UpdateRegexMatchSet(UpdateRegexMatchSetRequest)

Inserts or deletes RegexMatchTuple objects (filters) in a RegexMatchSet. For each RegexMatchSetUpdate object, you specify the following values:

  • Whether to insert or delete the object from the array. If you want to change a RegexMatchSetUpdate object, you delete the existing object and add a new one.

  • The part of a web request that you want AWS WAF to inspectupdate, such as a query string or the value of the User-Agent header.

  • The identifier of the pattern (a regular expression) that you want AWS WAF to look for. For more information, see RegexPatternSet.

  • Whether to perform any conversions on the request, such as converting it to lowercase, before inspecting it for the specified string.

For example, you can create a RegexPatternSet that matches any requests with User-Agent headers that contain the string B[a@]dB[o0]t. You can then configure AWS WAF to reject those requests.

To create and configure a RegexMatchSet, perform the following steps:

  1. Create a RegexMatchSet. For more information, see CreateRegexMatchSet.

  2. Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of an UpdateRegexMatchSet request.

  3. Submit an UpdateRegexMatchSet request to specify the part of the request that you want AWS WAF to inspect (for example, the header or the URI) and the identifier of the RegexPatternSet that contain the regular expression patters you want AWS WAF to watch for.

For more information about how to use the AWS WAF API to allow or block HTTP requests, see the AWS WAF Developer Guide.

Public Method UpdateRegexMatchSetAsync(UpdateRegexMatchSetRequest, CancellationToken)

Public Method UpdateRegexPatternSet(UpdateRegexPatternSetRequest)

Inserts or deletes RegexPatternString objects in a RegexPatternSet. For each RegexPatternString object, you specify the following values:

  • Whether to insert or delete the RegexPatternString.

  • The regular expression pattern that you want to insert or delete. For more information, see RegexPatternSet.

For example, you can create a RegexPatternString such as B[a@]dB[o0]t. AWS WAF will match this RegexPatternString to:

  • BadBot

  • BadB0t

  • B@dBot

  • B@dB0t

To create and configure a RegexPatternSet, perform the following steps:

  1. Create a RegexPatternSet. For more information, see CreateRegexPatternSet.

  2. Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of an UpdateRegexPatternSet request.

Public Method UpdateRegexPatternSetAsync(UpdateRegexPatternSetRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateRegexPatternSet operation.

Public Method UpdateRule(string, List<RuleUpdate>, string)

Inserts or deletes Predicate objects in a Rule. Each Predicate object identifies a predicate, such as a ByteMatchSet or an IPSet, that specifies the web requests that you want to allow, block, or count. If you add more than one predicate to a Rule, a request must match all of the specifications to be allowed, blocked, or counted. For example, suppose you add the following to a Rule:

  • A ByteMatchSet that matches the value BadBot in the User-Agent header

  • An IPSet that matches the IP address 192.0.2.44

You then add the Rule to a WebACL and specify that you want to block requests that satisfy the Rule. For a request to be blocked, the User-Agent header in the request must contain the value BadBotand the request must originate from the IP address 192.0.2.44.

To create and configure a Rule, perform the following steps:

  1. Create and update the predicates that you want to include in the Rule.

  2. Create the Rule. See CreateRule.

  3. Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of an UpdateRule request.

  4. Submit an UpdateRule request to add predicates to the Rule.

  5. Create and update a WebACL that contains the Rule. See CreateWebACL.

If you want to replace one ByteMatchSet or IPSet with another, you delete the existing one and add the new one.

Public Method UpdateSizeConstraintSet(UpdateSizeConstraintSetRequest)

Inserts or deletes SizeConstraint objects (filters) in a SizeConstraintSet. For each SizeConstraint object, you specify the following values:

  • Whether to insert or delete the object from the array. If you want to change a SizeConstraintSetUpdate object, you delete the existing object and add a new one.

  • The part of a web request that you want AWS WAF to evaluate, such as the length of a query string or the length of the User-Agent header.

  • Whether to perform any transformations on the request, such as converting it to lowercase, before checking its length. Note that transformations of the request body are not supported because the AWS resource forwards only the first 8192 bytes of your request to AWS WAF.

  • A ComparisonOperator used for evaluating the selected part of the request against the specified Size, such as equals, greater than, less than, and so on.

  • The length, in bytes, that you want AWS WAF to watch for in selected part of the request. The length is computed after applying the transformation.

Public Method UpdateSqlInjectionMatchSetAsync(UpdateSqlInjectionMatchSetRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the UpdateSqlInjectionMatchSet operation.

Public Method UpdateWebACL(UpdateWebACLRequest)

Inserts or deletes ActivatedRule objects in a WebACL. Each Rule identifies web requests that you want to allow, block, or count. When you update a WebACL, you specify the following values:

  • A default action for the WebACL, either ALLOW or BLOCK. AWS WAF performs the default action if a request doesn't match the criteria in any of the Rules in a WebACL.

  • The Rules that you want to add and/or delete. If you want to replace one Rule with another, you delete the existing Rule and add the new one.

  • For each Rule, whether you want AWS WAF to allow requests, block requests, or count requests that match the conditions in the Rule.

  • The order in which you want AWS WAF to evaluate the Rules in a WebACL. If you add more than one Rule to a WebACL, AWS WAF evaluates each request against the Rules in order based on the value of Priority. (The Rule that has the lowest value for Priority is evaluated first.) When a web request matches all of the predicates (such as ByteMatchSets and IPSets) in a Rule, AWS WAF immediately takes the corresponding action, allow or block, and doesn't evaluate the request against the remaining Rules in the WebACL, if any.

To create and configure a WebACL, perform the following steps:

  1. Create and update the predicates that you want to include in Rules. For more information, see CreateByteMatchSet, UpdateByteMatchSet, CreateIPSet, UpdateIPSet, CreateSqlInjectionMatchSet, and UpdateSqlInjectionMatchSet.

  2. Create and update the Rules that you want to include in the WebACL. For more information, see CreateRule and UpdateRule.

  3. Create a WebACL. See CreateWebACL.

  4. Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of an UpdateWebACL request.

  5. Submit an UpdateWebACL request to specify the Rules that you want to include in the WebACL, to specify the default action, and to associate the WebACL with a CloudFront distribution.

Be aware that if you try to add a RATE_BASED rule to a web ACL without setting the rule type when first creating the rule, the UpdateWebACL request will fail because the request tries to add a REGULAR rule (the default rule type) with the specified ID, which does not exist.

For more information about how to use the AWS WAF API to allow or block HTTP requests, see the AWS WAF Developer Guide.

Public Method UpdateWebACLAsync(UpdateWebACLRequest, CancellationToken)
