To do its magic, WAFW00F does the following:

  • Sends a normal HTTP request and analyses the response; this identifies a number of WAF solutions.
  • If that is not successful, it sends a number of (potentially malicious) HTTP requests and uses simple logic to deduce which WAF it is.
  • If that is also not successful, it analyses the responses previously returned and uses another simple algorithm to guess if a WAF or security solution is actively responding to our attacks.
