This section explains the WAF Profile feature on NSX Advanced Load Balancer

A WAF profile contains the basic settings for WAF functionality and is attached to a WAF Policy. As the WAF profile is independent of the policy and it is defined for a specific set of virtual services. Therefore, it can be easily reused to a feasible extent.

Few examples for WAF Profiles are as given below:

  • Application Java Profile: This profile contains all the necessary elements for any Java applications.

  • Application PHP Profile: This profile contains all necessary elements for any PHP applications.

  • API Profile: This profile contains API specific settings.
