LibHTP ============================================================================ Copyright 2009-2010 Open Information Security Foundation Copyright 2010-2012 Qualys, Inc. ============================================================================ LibHTP is a security-aware parser for the HTTP protocol and the related bits and pieces. The goals of the project, in the order of importance, are as follows: 1. Completeness of coverage; LibHTP must be able to parse virtually all traffic that is found in practice. 2. Permissive parsing; LibHTP must never fail to parse a stream that would be parsed by some other web server. 3. Awareness of evasion techniques; LibHTP must be able to detect and effectively deal with various evasion techniques, producing, where practical, identical or practically identical results as the web server processing the same traffic stream. 4. Performance; The performance must be adequate for the desired tasks. Completeness and security are often detremental to performance. Our idea of handling the conflicting requirements is to put the library user in control, allowing him to choose the most desired library characteristic. | IMPORTANT LIBHTP IS NOT YET CONSIDERED STABLE. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. DO NOT | USE IN PRODUCTION. WORK IS CURRENTLY UNDER WAY TO ENSURE THAT | LIBHTP IS SECURE AND THAT IT PERFORMS WELL. | STATUS LIBHTP IS VERY YOUNG AT THIS POINT. IT WILL BE SOME TIME BEFORE | IT CAN BE CONSIDER COMPLETE. AT THE MOMENT, THE FOCUS OF DEVELOPMENT | IS ON ACHIEVING THE FIRST TWO GOALS. See the LICENSE, COPYING and NOTICE files distributed with this work for information regarding licensing, copying and copyright ownership. INSTALLATION ------------ The installation process should be as simple as: $ ./configure $ make $ sudo make install If you want to use a repository version of LibHTP, do the following: 1. Retrieve the sources of the version you wish to use 2. Update the version number in htp.pc.in and configure.ac 3. Run autoconf -i --force, which will prepare the library for installation 4. Run doxygen to generate the API documentation 5. Continue to install as described above DOCUMENTATION ------------- The best documentation at this time is the code itself and the Doxygen output (which should be all right). There's also a quick start guide in the doc/ folder, which should give you enough information to get going.
