Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 9.2.

Starting in Junos OS Release 18.2R1, IDP policy is available within unified security policy. When IDP policy is available within the unified security policy then the IDP polciy configurations are simplified. Configuring source or destination address, source and destination-except, from and to zone, or application is not required with unified policy, as the match happens in the security policy itself.

Additional tags under filters of dynamic attack groups are added in Junos OS Release 18.2R1 for dynamic attacks grouping of IDP signatures.
