After selecting a pretuned SDF file for a router, you can do additional signature tuning tasks. You can add, edit, delete, and modify signatures to best fit your needs, or you can even create your own signatures when necessary. The following gives an example of how to add additional signatures and modify the actions using IPS MC. Select the device or device groups you want to configure, and then go to Settings->Signatures->IOS IPS.
