Hi Savasarala,

Thank you for the inputs, i had taken facebook as an example. Is there a way to turn off the HTTP POST method irrespective of any specific website? i.e POST Method on any website is blocked.

This should be possible using a custom application signature. There is an example of how to create such a custom app in the PAN-OS 4.0 Administrator's Guide.

Page 163 gives an example of how to detect a POST to a blog site, though really it could be any website.


Good discussion, We are looking for similar filtering for any HTTP or HTTPS post, instead of blocking we would like to capture whats been posted and log it. So, that it could be used for investigation purpose. Is this something possible using PAN products?

Hi Guys   I have been trying to get something similar to allow "http read" but drop "http write"(put, post, delete)  and i am not able to create the application in version 5.0 as it does not corresponds with the Docs. Was wondering if someone knew how to do this.

You can block all http post requests using a vulnerability profile.

Please have a look at the following KB:
