    Configuring ICMP Flood Attack Screen

    This topic describes how to configure detection of an ICMP flood attack.

    An ICMP flood typically occurs when an ICMP echo request overloads the victim with many requests such that the ICMP echo request spends all its resources responding until it can no longer process valid network traffic. When enabling the ICMP flood protection feature, you can set a threshold that, once exceeded, invokes the ICMP flood attack protection feature.

    To enable detection of an ICMP flood attack:

    1. Configure interfaces and assign an IP address to interfaces.
      user@host# set interfaces ge-0/0/1 unit 0 family inet address 192.0.2.0/24user@host# set interfaces ge-0/0/3 unit 0 family inet address 198.51.100.0/24
    2. Configure security zones trustZone and untrustZone and assign interfaces to them.
      user@host# set security zones security-zone trustZone host-inbound-traffic system-services alluser@host# set security zones security-zone trustZone host-inbound-traffic protocols alluser@host# set security zones security-zone trustZone interfaces ge-0/0/1.0user@host# set security zones security-zone untrustZone host-inbound-traffic system-services alluser@host# set security zones security-zone untrustZone host-inbound-traffic protocols alluser@host# set security zones security-zone untrustZone interfaces ge-0/0/3.0
    3. Configure security policies from untrustZone to trustZone.
      user@host# set security policies from-zone untrustZone to-zone trustZone policy policy1 match source-address anyuser@host# set security policies from-zone untrustZone to-zone trustZone policy policy1 match destination-address anyuser@host# set security policies from-zone untrustZone to-zone trustZone policy policy1 match application anyuser@host# set security policies from-zone untrustZone to-zone trustZone policy policy1 then permituser@host# set security policies default-policy deny-all
    4. Configure security screens and attach them to untrustZone.
      user@host# set security screen ids-option untrustScreen icmp flooduser@host# set security screen ids-option untrustScreen alarm-without-dropuser@host# set security zones security-zone untrustZone screen untrustScreen
    5. Configure syslog.
      user@host# set system syslog file syslog any anyuser@host# set system syslog file syslog archive size 10000000user@host# set system syslog file syslog explicit-priorityuser@host# set system syslog file syslog structured-datauser@host# set security policies from-zone untrustZone to-zone trustZone policy policy1 then log session-inituser@host# set security policies from-zone untrustZone to-zone trustZone policy policy1 then log session-close
    6. Commit the configuration.
      user@host# commit
