Functions and Features

Functions and Features


For details on IPS software installation and service configuration, see the IPS Software Installation and Configuration Guide.

The OSP card can not only process and forward service data, but also provide certain functions using specific operating system and application software.

The OSP card supports intrusion prevention system (IPS) software.

The IPS software provides comprehensive security functions:

  • Detects attacks based on a signature database. The IPS software can identify attacks targeted for vulnerabilities of commonly used applications (such as Adobe PDF Reader and Microsoft Office) and operating systems (such as Microsoft Windows), and abnormalities of these applications and operating systems.
  • Identifies behaviors that violate RFC standards through application identification, protocol decoding, and state detection, and prevents running of the applications that use vulnerabilities of protocols.
  • Detects attacks to HTTPS traffic and takes measures to protect the traffic.
  • Automatically updates and upgrades the signature database to defend against vulnerabilities of applications and operating systems in advance.
  • Supports periodic and emergent update of the signature database and allows users to add self-defined signatures according to their needs.
  • Prevents intrusions at a high precision using the default security policy and provides the bypass function.

The IPS software also provides comprehensive management functions:

  • Fine-grained right management: The IPS manages user rights based on different user levels, for example, monitoring level, configuration level, and management level.
  • System management based on the web system, command line interface (CLI), and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
  • Reports on logs and alarms: The IPS uses log analysis software to collect and analyze logs and alarms accurately, and provides various reports on the logs and alarms. Users can define reports according to their own needs.
