What is it?

A puppet module that installs apache with mod_evasive and mod_security (optional). This module has been written and tested on CentOS 6 and is primarily used for configuring apache as a proxy for Tomcat via AJP and other services via TCP, but it also has support for mod_passenger, mod_python, and mod_wsgi as well.

Disabling mod_security by vhost, rule, or IP are provided. JSON logging for vhosts allowing easy import into logstash is available.

Support for SSL certificates, password files, or any other sensitive information may be installed installed to a limted access directory through apache::securefile.
