Create an IPS Signature Static Group

The signature database in Juniper Security Director Cloud contains predefined intrusion prevention system (IPS) signature static groups.

You can create customized IPS signature static groups from the Create IPS Signature Static Group page. You must have the tenant administrator role or a custom role assigned with the appropriate IPS tasks to create customized IPS signature static groups.

Static groups enable better manageability because you can group different types of signatures into one entity.

To create a customized IPS signature static group:

  1. Select SRX > Security Subscriptions > IPS > IPS Signatures.

    The IPS Signatures page opens.

  2. Select Create > Static Group.

    The Create IPS Signature Static Group page opens.

  3. Complete the configuration according to the guidelines in Table 1.

    Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.

  4. Click OK.

    The IPS Signatures page opens with a message that the static group was successfully created.

    You can use the new IPS signature static group in an IPS rule or an exempt rule. You can then reference the IPS profile containing the rule in a firewall policy, which you can deploy on the device.
