Layer 7 refers to the top layer in the 7-layer OSI Model of the Internet. It is also known as the “application layer.” It’s the top layer of the data processing that occurs just below the surface or behind the scenes of the software applications that users interact with. The HTTP requests and responses used to load webpages, for example, are layer 7 events.
DDoS attacks that take place at this level are known as layer 7 attacks or application layer attacks. Given that attacks on apps are the leading cause of breaches, you need to protect the HTTP traffic that provides a gateway to valuable app data. In this webinar, you will learn how protect web applications from a variety of application layer attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, and cookie poisoning, among others.
