The Official ModSecurity Docker Image (No CRS Included)
Full Description

ModSecurity Docker Image

What is ModSecurity

ModSecurity is an open source,
cross platform
web application firewall (WAF) engine
for Apache, IIS and Nginx

How to use this image

Build the image:

docker build -t modsec .

Run the Image:

docker run -ti --rm -p 80:80 modsec

This will start an Apache Webserver,
on port 80,
with ModSecurity installed.

You can access this webserver typically by
navigating to http://localhost

Note: ModSecurity without any ruleset isn't very helpful.
A common ruleset,
the OWASP Core Rule Set (CRS),
is available free on GitHub.
CRS has it's own Dockerfile that builds on this image.


This image builds ModSecurity
with the recommended configuration by default.

This configuration blocks very little.
Please see the Recommended Configuration
for more details


At this point,
there are no configuration options
for this image.
