Posts: n/a

I am enabling the IDS feature on my pix. what is the process of
updating the signiture?
Does the cisco updated the signitures at all? is it an anual fee I
need to pay for cisco? (as in Checkpoint smart defance?)

The only way to update the signatures is to upgrade PIX versions.

There were no signature updates in PIX 6. I believe that some new
signatures got added in PIX 7 (relative to PIX 6).

In several years, I found the PIX IDS useful only -once-. The rest
of the time, it either produced nothing, or produced lots of messages
that were "noise" because they represented constant conditions
in the outside network that we had no control over (e.g., people
sharing the network and whom had NETBIOS broadcasts turned on.)
