Does anyone know of any open source XML firewalls that provide equivalent functionality to DataPower, Vordel, etc?

I don't need it for implementation but am simply interested in seeing code for how they are developed. –  jm04469 Jun 4 '09 at 12:26
Out of interest: XML Firewall? Do you mean configuring a (conventional) firewall by using XML, or do you mean something that does content inspection and accepts/denies depending on the (XML) content of the request? –  Server Horror Jul 3 '09 at 11:54

ModSecurity is a big open source one that I currently use.

I'll second Josh's recommendation on ModSecurity. If your XML data is being served/processed via Apache, either directly or proxied through it, then I would give it a shot. It will take a fair amount of tuning and your will have to roll up your sleeves.

Did you have a look to AccessStream "Open Source Enterprise Application Security" ?
