Shadow Daemon is a collection of tools to detect, record and prevent attacks on web applications. Technically speaking, Shadow Daemon is a web application firewall that intercepts requests and filters out malicious parameters. It is a modular system that separates web application, analysis and interface to increase security, flexibility and expandability.
This component can be used to connect PHP applications with the background server.
For the full documentation please refer to shadowd.zecure.org.
The PHP setting auto_prepend_file should be used to load Connector.php automatically when a PHP script is executed. This can be done either globally by editing the php.ini or locally by editing the web server configuration and overwriting the setting for single vhosts or directories only.
You also have to create a configuration file. You can copy misc/examples/connectors.ini to /etc/shadowd/connectors.ini. The example configuration is annotated and should be self-explanatory.
