Litespeed Security

LiteSpeed Web Server is designed with security as a top consideration. These feautures:

  • SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)

    SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text—leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept all data being sent between a browser and a web server, they can see and use that information.

  • IP Address Limitation

    IP-level throttling limits network bandwidth and IP-level the number of concurrent connections from a single IP address.

  • HTTP Request Limit and Checking

    This feature denying accessing hidden files and parent directories thus protected LFI and RCE attacks.

  • WAF (Web Application Firewall)

    This feature helps defend against XSS attacks and SQL injection attacks, blocking those requests right from the start.


  • and There are features Static file checking, External application firewall, CGI resources consumption limit and Run LSWS in chroot jail.
Peace Out!
