IDP Custom Attack Objects Service Contexts

 

The service or application binding field specifies the service that the attack uses to enter your network.

Note

Specify either the service or the protocol binding in a custom attack. In case you specify both, the service binding takes precedence.

Understanding IDP Custom Attack Objects Service Contexts

  • any—Specify any if you are unsure of the correct service and want to match the signature in all services. Because some attacks use multiple services to attack your network, you might want to select the Any service binding to detect the attack regardless of which service the attack chooses for a connection.

  • service—Most attacks use a specific service to attack your network. You can select the specific service used to perpetrate the attack as the service binding.

    Table 1 displays supported services and default ports associated with the services.
