How to run

Test Machine

Please skip this step, if you do not run naxsi with nginx on your host OS

$ export DOCKER_HOST= // test01

with VM

Please skip this step too, if you do not run naxsi with nginx on your Virtual OS

$ make create-machine
$ docker-machine ip naxsi-test-env
NAME             ACTIVE   DRIVER       STATE     URL                         SWARM   DOCKER    ERRORS
naxsi-test-env   -        virtualbox   Running   tcp://           v1.12.4

$ export DOCKER_HOST= // vm

Wordpress + MariaDB

$ docker run -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=wordpress -e MYSQL_DATABASE=wordpress --name wordpressdb -v "$PWD/db":/var/lib/mysql -d mariadb:latest

$ docker run -e WORDPRESS_DB_PASSWORD=wordpress --name wordpress --link wordpressdb:mysql -p 8080:80 -v "$PWD/html":/var/www/html -d wordpress


$ make run-blog

NginX + Naxsi

$ make build
$ make run-naxsi

Naxsi Test

$ curl "<"

Elastic Search

$ docker pull elasticsearch
$ docker run -dit --name elasticsearch -p 9200:9200 -p 9300:9300 elasticsearch

// or

$ make run-elastic

// create elastic search index and test call
$ curl -X GET http://localhost:9200
$ curl -X PUT http://localhost:9200/nxapi

Import Nginx log to Elastic Search

$ ./nxtool.py -c nxapi.json --files=/var/log/nginx/localhost_error80.log

Get log data from Elastic Search

$ curl -X POST "" -d {}

To generate whitelists for DOMAIN

I want to generate whitelists for, so I will get more precise statistics first

$ ./nxtool.py -c nxapi.json -s -f
$ ./nxtool.py -c nxapi.json -f --slack --colors | grep BasicRule
$ ./nxtool.py -c nxapi.json -f --slack --colors | grep BasicRule > /etc/nginx/custom.rules

To Troublshoot with newest Elastic Search docker image on VM

If you get the memory issue of elastic search container inside vm please see this QA

max virtual memory areas vm.max_map_count [65530] is too low

$ sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=262144

If fielddata issue is happen with newest Elastic Search, when nxtool generate whitelist.

You should patch it as follow

PUT ~/nxapi/_mapping/events
  "properties": {
    "id": {
        "type": "text",
        "fielddata": true,
        "fields": {
            "keyword": {
                "type": "keyword",
                "ignore_above": 256

nginx_zmq_log within newest nginx

Configure: removed the --with-ipv6 option. IPv6 now compiled-in automatically if support is found. If there is a need to disable it for some reason, --with-cc-opt="-DNGX_HAVE_INET6=0" can be used for this.

To compile a third-party module that has been converted, use the new --add-dynamic-module argument and specify the path:

./configure --add-dynamic-module=/path/to/module/source

As with NGINX modules, a shared object is created and installed in the modules subdirectory, and you add a load_module directive for it to the NGINX configuration. Our developer relations team is available to assist with converting a module. Contact us via the NGINX development mailing list.

ngx_zmq_log module doesn't work well with nginx. There is no problem, when it's compiled with nginx. But it's not run cause of dlopen: undefined symbol ngx_zmq_log

nginx_zmq_log dynamic module compile with nginx

./configure --conf-path=/etc/nginx/nginx.conf \
    --add-dynamic-module=../nginx-log-zmq-master \

ngx_zmq_log configuration in nginx.conf
