Security Signature Library

Security Signature Library


Security signature libraries include the intrusion defense library .You can upgrade the library to improve device capabilities of identifying intrusions.

An IPS prevents and detects intrusions based on the intrusion defense library in which IPS signatures are predefined. IPS signatures describe characteristics of attacks on the network. A device compares the packet content against IPS signatures to detect and defend against attacks. If a data flow matches the characteristics in an IPS signature, the device processes the data flow based on the action matching the IPS signature.

The libraries are upgraded in the security center in real time. After purchasing the library license, you can obtain the latest libraries to upgrade the security signature libraries.

You can upgrade the libraries locally or directly in the security center.

  • Upgrade in the security center: You must purchase a license to connect a device to the server deployed by Huawei. The domain name of the security center is If the device can access the security center, you can upgrade the libraries in either of the following modes:
    • Scheduled upgrade: You can specify the time when the libraries are upgraded. To prevent upgrade failures due to unstable networks, you are advised to set the upgrade time to the time when the volume of network traffic is small.
    • Immediate upgrade: When a new attack is detected on the network but the scheduled upgrade time is not reached, you can immediately upgrade the libraries to allow the device to defend against the new attack.
  • Local upgrade: When the device cannot access the security center, you can download the latest library upgrade packages from the security center and save them locally. Then you can upload the upgrade packages to the device on the web platform so that the device upgrades the libraries.


  1. Access the Security Signature Library page.

    Log in to the web platform and choose System Management > Upgrade and Maintenance > Security Signature Library ,as shown in Figure 17-7.

    The default value is Enable Scheduled Upgrade.

    Version Rollback

    Click Version Rollback. In the Information dialog box that is displayed, click OK.
