Protect your websites with Laravel Firewall

Web Application Firewall (WAF) package for Laravel

This package intends to protect your Laravel app from different type of attacks such as XSS, SQLi, RFI, LFI, User Agent, and a lot more. It will also block repeated attacks and send notification via email and/or slack when attack is detected. Furthermore, it will log failed logins and block the IP after a number of attempts.

Getting Started

1. Install

Run the following command:

composer require akaunting/firewall

2. Register (for Laravel < 5.5)

Register the service provider in config/app.php


3. Publish

Publish configuration, language, and migrations

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=firewall

4. Database

Create db tables

php artisan migrate

5. Configure

You can change the firewall settings of your app from config/firewall.php file


Middlewares are already defined so should just add them to routes. The firewall.all middleware applies all the middlewares available in the all_middleware array of config file.

Route::group(['middleware' => 'firewall.all'], function () {
    Route::get('/', '[email protected]');

You can apply each middleware per route. For example, you can allow only whitelisted IPs to access admin:

Route::group(['middleware' => 'firewall.whitelist'], function () {
    Route::get('/admin', '[email protected]');

Or you can get notified when anyone NOT in whitelist access admin, by adding it to the inspections config:

Route::group(['middleware' => 'firewall.url'], function () {
    Route::get('/admin', '[email protected]');

Available middlewares applicable to routes:



You may also define routes for each middleware in config/firewall.php and apply that middleware or firewall.all at the top of all routes.


Firewall will send a notification as soon as an attack has been detected. Emails entered in config must be valid Laravel users in order to send notifications. Check out the Notifications documentation of Laravel for further information.
