Hey False,

one thing you should keep in mind: While i was pentesting mod_security
and a bunch of commercial WAFs, i recognized that most of the products
work pretty well with popular assessment tools (w3af, etc.). They
detectedmost of the attacks. Afterwards i setup a vulnerable website
and tried to manually attack it. There was a huge difference: A lot of
manuall attacks were not recognized. I guess this is because most of
those WAF vendors try to show how good their product is by running
automated pentests which such tools. Therefore their products seem to
be optimized for such scenarios.
So to really get a picture about a WAF's performance, handcrafted
attacks are a must!

Cheers

I need to test my WAF. I want to set up a simple network in the lab
like this:
XP or Linux client <--> WAF <--> Honeypot/test webserver

1) Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can use to
simulate/generate attacks/suspicous traffic towards the weberver from my
client?

2) Is there a honeypot image out there that I can download that would
be good to be the role of my test
webserver?

Any suggestions or ideas are very much appreciated.
