== Talk ==

Title: Trials & Tribulations
of WAF Implementation


A web application firewall (WAF) is
an appliance, server plugin, or filter that applies a set of rules to an
HTTP conversation. Generally, these rules cover common attacks such as
Cross-site Scripting (XSS) and SQL Injection. By customizing the rules
to your application, many attacks can be identified and blocked. The effort
to perform this customization can be significant and needs to be maintained
as the application is modified. 

Mark will be presenting on his experience
in implementing a Web Application Firewall solution through all phases
from research to implementation.

== Presenter == 

Mark Hillick - Application Networking
Team, Citrix Systems

Mark Hillick has 10 years experience
in relation to Internet, networking, systems administration and security

Mark graduated from Queen's University,
