Re: Snort Rule creation

Hi Ahmed

Have you checked the attack compilation settings on the device tab?

From the IPS guide:

Configuration of attack compilation

The Attack Compilation page enables you to specify the type of attack definitions to be included in the IPS

Policies for a specific Sensor.

To access the Attack Compilation page:

1 Click the Devices tab.

2 Select the domain from the Domain drop-down list.

3 On the left pane, click the Devices tab.

4 Select the device from the Device drop-down list.

5 Select Troubleshooting | Attack Compilation.

You can select the following types of attack definitions for the Sensor:

• Default McAfee Attacks (from the Signature Set)

• Custom Attacks–McAfee Format — These are the McAfee Custom Attacks that you defined or received

from McAfee.

• Custom Attacks–Imported Snort Rules — These are the Snort Custom Attacks that you imported into or created in the Manage

Re: Snort Rule creation

Hi Ahmed,

Is the snort rule 'included' on the custom attack editor?

If it shows as included, what priority have you given it?

Does it show on the Default IPS policy?
