What is new in WAF 2.14

  • Support for gRPC was added: now Wallarm can protect API and web applications that operate via the gRPC protocol.

    About the gRPC Protocol

    gRPC is a modern open‑source high-performance Remote Procedure Call (RPC) framework from Google.

    Its high performance is achieved through the use of HTTP/2 for transport and protobuf for data type descriptions.

    The gRPC protocol can be used as an alternative to the REST when building APIs and services.

  • Support for the customizable block pages and server response codes was added for the events of blocking by IP address. Setup is performed via the wallarm_acl_block_page directive.

  • Support for the customizable response codes was added for the events of blocking malicious requests. Setup is performed via the wallarm_block_page directive.
