    Creating Custom Feeds, Infected Host

    To access this page, click Configure>Threat Prevention>Custom Feeds.

    • Note that infected hosts are hosts known to be compromised. For an infected host custom feed, enter host IP addresses manually or upload a text file with the IP addresses of infected hosts.
    • If you create a custom infected hosts feed, it will override the SKY ATP infected hosts feed.
    • To use a custom feed, apply it to the source or destination address in a firewall rule. In the firewall rule, you can filter addresses to show custom feed types, including infected hosts.
    • Note that when Cloud feeds only is selected as the Threat Prevention Type, the infected host custom feed is not available.
    • For creating other custom feed types, see Creating Custom Feeds, Dynamic, Black and White.

    Warning: When you have no Sky ATP Configuration Type selected (No selection), Sky ATP realms are disabled. Because site selection is usually done from the Sky ATP realm page, you must select sites from the Custom Feed - Infected Hosts page when in “No selection” mode. The custom feeds are then downloaded to the devices in the chosen sites. This is the only time site selection is available in the Custom Feeds - Infected Hosts page.

    To create local file and remote file custom feeds:

    1. Select Configure>Threat Prevention>Custom Feeds.
    2. Select the Infected Host tab.

      Note: When Cloud feeds only is selected as the Threat Prevention Type, the infected host custom feed is not available.

    3. Click Create and select one of the following:
      • Feeds with local files—This is data you enter manually into the provided fields or upload from a text file on your location machine. See Table 1 for details.
      • Feeds with remote file server—This is a data feed from a remote server. Configure communication with the remote server using instructions in Table 2.
    4. Complete the configuration by using the guidelines inTable 1 or Table 2.
    5. Click OK. Your entry is added to custom list displayed at the bottom of the page.

    Note: To use a custom feed, apply it to the source or destination address in a firewall rule. In the firewall rule, you can filter addresses to show Infected Hosts, Dynamic Addresses, Whitelists and Blacklists.

    Use the fields in Table 1 to add custom feeds.
