    Updating the IDP Detector Engine (NSM Procedure)

    The IDP detector engine is dynamically changeable firmware that runs on ISG security devices running ScreenOS 5.0.0-IDP1, standalone IDP sensors, J-series devices, and SRX-series devices. Automatic updates to the IDP detector engine occur when you:

    • Upgrade security device firmware.
    • Load a new detector engine—New detector engines may be downloaded with normal attack object updates. You must load the new detector engine onto the device.

    Note: You cannot downgrade the IDP detector engine version on the device.

    To update the IDP detector engine for an IDP device:

    1. From the Device Manager, select Security Updates > Update ScreenOS/IDP Device Detector. The Load IDP Detector Engine wizard starts.
    2. Click Next, and then follow the instructions in the wizard to update the IDP detector engine on the selected device.

    Note: Updating the IDP detector engine on a device does not require a reboot of the device.
