Starting today you can provision AWS WAF on Application Load Balancer resources using AWS CloudFormation.

AWS WAF is a web application firewall that helps protect your web applications from common web exploits that could affect application availability, compromise security, or consume excessive resources. AWS WAF gives you control over which traffic to allow or block to your web applications by defining customizable web security rules.

AWS CloudFormation simplifies provisioning and management on AWS. You can create templates for the service or application architectures you want, and have AWS CloudFormation use those templates for quick and reliable provisioning of the services or applications.

You can now use CloudFormation templates to create, update and delete AWS WAF resources on ALB including WebACLs, Rules and Conditions.
