IDP Detector Engine Overview
The IDP detector engine is a dynamic protocol decoder that includes support for decoding more than 60 protocols and more than 500 service contexts. The IDP detector engine is used by the IDP process engine in packet analysis.
The detector engine and application signature code base is packaged and released separately from the IDP OS, ScreenOS, or Junos OS code bases. Juniper Networks Security Intelligence Center releases IDP detector engine updates more frequently in order to ensure that IDP products protect your network against recently discovered vulnerabilities.
