    Viewing Predefined Attack Objects (NSM Procedure)


    Juniper Networks Security Center (J-Security Center) develops predefined attack objects and attack object groups for IDP rulebase rules. In most cases, the predefined attack objects are the only attack objects you need to protect your network.

    Figure 1 shows the attack object viewer in NSM. You can use the attack object viewer to view the following summary for each attack object:

    • Name of the attack object
    • Severity of the attack: critical, major, minor, warning, info
    • Category
    • Keywords
    • Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures database (CVE) number
    • Security Focus Bugtraq database number

    You can double-click the entry in the attack object table to view its details, such as the context and pattern for signature attacks. Figure 2 shows attack details for an HTTP attack.
