    How to detect Winny and Share.

    TK45

      Hi,

       

      Do anyone know if NGFW can detect Winny and Share (File sharing software on P2P)?

      On SMC, I confirmed applications NGFW has, but Winny and Share are not found.

       

      Thanks,

          Hi,

           

          there is no application or fingerprint for either of those. There is a "Peer to Peer" situation category under Traffic Identification, with fingerprints for many torrent and other P2P clients. But those aren't really generic so I don't think they will catch these two clients.

           

          "Share" traffic seems to be encrypted so it may be very challenging to detect it. I can only recommend to open a support ticket to see could applications for these clients be developed.
