Diagram of Nemesida WAF modules interaction

  • Nemesida WAF dynamic module carries out a signature analysis of requests coming to the server and, based on the behavioral models built by Nemesida AI MLC, makes a decision to block them or transfer them to other modules.
  • Nemesida AI MLA 1 machine learning module applies behavioral models built by Nemesida AI MLC to requests received from the dynamic module and sends a blocking command.
  • Nemesida AI MLC 1 machine learning module is designed to build behavioral models and detect other anomalies (for example, Brute-force, flood, DDoS L7).
  • Nemesida WAF API is designed to receive information about attacks and detected vulnerabilities, as well as transmit information about blocked requests and the results of the Nemesida AI and Nemesida WAF Scanner modules in the PostgreSQL DBMS.
  • Nemesida WAF Cabinet is designed to visualize and analyze the events of the components from the PostgreSQL DBMS, as well as systematize information about anomalies and identified vulnerabilities.
  • Nemesida WAF Signtest module tweaks the use of the models built and applied by the Nemesida AI module.
  • Vulnerability Scanner Nemesida WAF Scanner is designed to identify vulnerabilities in a protected web application.

1 Attack detection using machine learning is only available for Business and Enterprise plans.

Hardware requirements*

For the effective operation of Nemesida WAF components, it is recommended to use servers that have the following technical characteristics:

Server for the Nemesida WAF dynamic module and Nemesida AI MLA
analyses and redirects unblocked requests to the server with the web application
Processor 4 cores x 2.4 GHz
RAM 6 GB
Available disk space 10 GB
Server for the Nemesida AI MLC
is used to build behavioral models and analyse all incoming requests with their help, brute-force attacks, flood and DDoS L7 attacks
Processor 12 cores x 2.4 GHz
RAM From 6 GB when building behavioral models using Nemesida AI MLS cloud server
From 48 GB when building behavioral models on a local server
Available disk space 25 GB
Server for the Nemesida WAF API, Nemesida WAF Cabinet, Nemesida WAF Signtest and PostgreSQL DBMS
used to store and visualize identified anomalies and flaws in a web application, as well as to control the behavior of a machine learning module
Processor 4 cores x 2.4 GHz
RAM 16 GB
Available disk space 25 GB

* For loads up to 10k RPS.
** When building behavioral models using Nemesida AI MLS cloud server.

Nemesida AI – a machine learning module
Accuracy of identification of the attacks Nemesida AI about 30% more efficient than signature analysis.
Machine learning method The Nemesida WAF operation is based on classical machine learning algorithm «Random Forest», that is able to detect attack with minimum response time, nearly without false positives.
Hardware resource requirements Unlike training models using neural networks, classical machine learning algorithms do not require much processing power, so the processor of the Intel Core i3 family or higher will be sufficient for calculations.
Additional features
  • Adaptation of WAF to a mutable application
  • Automatic creation of behavioral models
  • Detection of anomalies and assessment of their severity level
  • Identification of new signs of attacks, including the identification of «zero day» attacks
  • Behavioral models management interface (additional training of models)
  • Ability to change the training period of behavioral models
  • Additional training of models using a backup copy of the training sample
Additional Information
  • Blocking an individual request
  • Temporarily blocking requests from the source by IP address
  • No artificial restrictions on traffic, RPS and the number of virtual hosts
  • Validate HTTP Transactions for RFC Compliance and Best Practices
  • Categorization by the type of activity (type of attack) of sources
  • Detection of bots based on their traits and behavioral analysis
  • Creation of signatures and their exclusions based on a set of criteria (for example: method, URL, parameter value, headers) and regular expressions
  • Using machine learning to minimize false positives and detect unknown attacks, easy management of the learning or retraining process via a web interface
  • Support for WebSockets, XML, JSON
  • Integration with ClamAV antivirus, SIEM systems and firewalls
  • Analysis of web application vulnerabilities using Nemesida WAF Scanner
  • Free version with limited functionality Nemesida WAF Free with basic protection of web applications from OWASP attacks based on signature analysis
