Q&A: What are passed violations in WAF?

Question

  • What is the meaning/concept behind passed violations?
  • How do I see passed violation in my Portal account?

Environment

  • Silverline WAF
  • Proxy / Proxies
  • Attack Signature

Answer

  • When a new signature is released and pushed out in Silverline they will remain in staging.
  • Staging means that the system applies the attack signatures to the web application traffic, but does not apply the blocking policy action to requests that trigger those attack signatures.
  • Signatures on staging won't be in alerted nor blocked status, these will be in a third status called "passed".
