The 7.3.1 IPS release contains a deployment profile feature (threat profiles) for Edge, Data Center, SCADA, and Web Applications scenarios. As an additional reference point, the IPS Signature Development Team is providing a simple zipped CSV file containing a list of signatures explicitly enabled in each threat profile. An updated file will be available here whenever the threat profiles are updated.
Do you need to report a false positive? If you believe you have identified a benign trigger, please provide the following information and we will determine if the signature can be improved. Include the signature and sub-signature id, traffic sample(s), alert context buffers, and any additional relevant information.
Need a custom signature? Is there specific traffic you want to identify on your network? Do you think that the signature would be useful to other customers? We can provide guidance on developing a custom signature. If it is universally applicable, we may be able to test and maintain it by releasing it in our standard signature set. Please include a detailed summary of the issue, traffic sample, and any associated information you think may be useful.
