I have published a internal hosted website ( that has its own logon) via the Netscaler by


Creating a LB Vserver

doing ssl offload on the NS

then ssl to the webserver

a rewrite policy

a responder policy


Everything works fine but just wondering about security and if I need more trying to do this on a standard licence if possible but conscious that there are ways of injecting code into webpages ect so want to cover all my bases if possible

You can use AppFirewall on NetScaler to enhance security.

For the license requirement, please check the following link:

Hey, Good timing, I just spent 2.5 days teaching AppFw!


You need Enterprise or Platinum for the AppFW feature.


And yes, the Netscaler Application firewall will provide protections against things like SQL injection, forced browsing, CSRF, CSS etc


Just enabling the AppFW and enabling the features *can* break your website (you'd be surprised how many site break the "strict rules" - for example, modifying cookies on the client side)  so read up carefully, or come on a CNS-318 training course (it's days 1-3 of the combined CNS-320 Advanced Netscaler course)
