This module provides attack surface reduction enhancements against the HTTP Flood Attacks at the web application level. Massive crawling/scanning tools, HTTP Flood tools can be detected and blocked by this module via htaccess, firewall or iptables, etc. (like mod_evasive)
You can use this module by including "iosec.php" to any PHP file which wants to be protected.
You can test module here: http://www.iosec.org/test.php (demo)
