Name: OWASP iSABEL Proxy Server (home page)
Purpose: Recent research taken from leading network security solution providers shows that traditional firewalls focus their security mainly around the ports and protocols which is the packet headers and not the actual data content known as the packet payload. Packet headers only contains basic information like source and destination address which is very unreliable when it comes to identifying potential threats, attack, and malicious.

The idea of the project is to gain a deeper knowledge about securing web applications from different threats and attacks coming from external sources; this can be achieved by developing intermediary software that runs between the client and the server. This intermediary software will be based on a proxy server that will be implemented on layer 7 (Application) of the OSI model (Open Systems Interconnection), and it’s function is to accept network traffic from different client’s trying to access resources from the web server, once the client successfully established a connection, the proxy will inspect all incoming network packets coming from the clients for malicious parameter and files such as viruses, worms, trojans.
