We have stopped maintaining this information in the KB as the the best way to get this information is from the manager.
There are two ways of getting the data. One is from the policy viewer, the other is by creating a specific policy that you can use to run a report that can be exported into an HTML report, CSV file or PDF.
1) Using policy editor:
Under the policies select the All-Inclusive With Audit policy.
Once the policy editor is open clear any filters that may have previously been entered by clicking "All (Clear Drilldown)" on the left side.
Create a new filter under the "Filter Management" drop down at the top right corner.
Give the filter a name and select "Recommended for SmartBlocking(RFSB)" from the Filter Criteria.
It shoudl default to Equals and Yes. Save and Apply the filter.
You should now see the RFSB list displayed. The filter can be re-applied later from the "Apply Filter" selection under Filter Management.
2) Using the reporting process.
Under Advanced Policies navigate to Rule Sets and create a new ruleset.
Give the Rule Set a name.
Click on the Rules tab.
Insert a new rule and leave the option to "Include".
In the Configure the rule page select the "SmartBlocking" tab and click the "only Include McAfee Recommended for SmartBlocking (RFSB) attacks in this rule".
Click OK again.
Ensure you have only one rule in the Ruleset rules.
Navigate to the IPS Policies and create a new policy.
Give the policy a name, leave the Granularity as "Use a single set of definitions for the entire policy (simpler)".
Specify your RFSB ruleset created above.
Click "Calculate Attack Definitions".
Save and Finish creating the policy.
Navigate to the reports.
Select Traditional Reports and Chose the IPS Policy Details report.
Select the RFSB policy from the list and select critieria and output format.
Generate the report.
Hi Gfergus, i have one question about policy in NSP: Default Inline IPS Policy when apply is block something? or just enable attacks Min Attack Severity 2 Low and BTP 4 Medium? If i want to block some attack that so i must blocking manual? I'm confuse . Just want to clear about difference policies. Thanks!
Thanks Gfergus, i read guides and learning course that just say:
"The sensor begins blocking attacks right out of the box (if the sensor is deployed in Inline mode)" and "
All provided policies, except for the two All-Inclusive policies, enable attacks with a minimum Severity
Level of 2 (Low) and a maximum Benign Trigger Probability of 4 (Medium). The Severity Level and
Benign Trigger Probability settings exclude known noisy signatures in an effort to limit spurious alerts"
I also check default Inline IPS with RFSB (high confidence and low BTP) that just enable attacks but not smartblocking option enabled.
Because i have talk McAfee Professional Service that tell me must set and filter some exploit with BTP Low and enable smartblocking for those. So i think default inline IPS will not block some thing except that McAfee say "The sensor begins blocking attacks right out of the box (if the sensor is deployed in Inline mode)" i dont understand what is right out of the box??
