Help with adding hash values to blacklists on NSP

The McAfee documents state that the option to add MD5 Hash Values to blacklists are located under the Policy --> <Admin Domain> --> Intrusion Prevention --> Exceptions. When I navigate to this section of the NSP,  the options are limited to Ignore Rules and SSL Decryption. I am assuming this is because there is no Endpoint Intelligence Configured. I'm also assuming NTBA appliance is required to have Endpoint Intelligence configured. Am I correct that there is no way to Blacklist Hash Vallues without these two integrations setup and configured?

Re: Help with adding hash values to blacklists on NSP

Hi @B-Locks 

Adding Blacklist/Whitelist has no dependency on the product integration. Navigate to Policy - Exceptions - File Hashes to add the hashes manually or via a CSV file.

The user used for NSM login might not have the permission hence  you are unable to see file hashes option. Kindly try to login with the 'admin' user.

Syntax for adding hash via a CSV file:

<file extension type>, <size in Byte>, <hash type MD5>, <hash value>
