Disabling a specific signature ID under Exploit prevention in ENS through for specific time period

Jump to solution

Hi,

Wanted to check is there any automated way we can use to disable specific signature ID in ENS exploit prevention rule for specific day and timing through server task or any other means.Once its disabled on specific day it should re-enable after 2 days.

@haaris There is not a way to do this as an included feature within ENS Exploit Prevention policy (unlike HIPS Firewall where there are time based policy settings). Instead, you would have to acheive this via Policy Assignment Rules and Tagging. In which you would have to have an Assignment Rule based on tagging, and then a scheduled Server Task to apply the tag to the systems at the specified time, and and then send a wakeup call to enforce. Then, you'd have to have another Task to remove the tag when you no longer want the rule disabled.

This aspect does actually fall under ePO, as you originally believed.

Hi @jess_arman,

Thanks for these information..

But I already thought of this but the problem is the kind of policy we have we cant use this method so I was looking for a way where we can disable specific signature on the basis of time

@haaris Then unfortunately, as mentioned, there's not an integrated way of doing this (like there is in HIPS Firewall) at this time. 
With the tag based policy assignment rule + Scheduled server tasks, you can have it disabled/enabled based on time due to the scheduled reconfiguration of the policy application. It's just much less elegant.

This would be a great Product Idea to suggest for a future release; Instructions can be found in KB60021
