Exporting Custom Signatures

Unanswered Question
Apr 15th, 2008

Is there a way to export custom signatures from one IDS system to another. Either from the sensor, CDM or IDSM. Also is there a way to import Snort signatures and import them as Cisco sigs

This would be for IPS 4200 series devices

I have this problem too.

No, there is unfortunately no method for doing that (would be VERY nice however). Also, be aware that the Cisco product (& TAC) does not handle custom signatures very well. It is also very easy to write signatures that use all memory on the sensors and crash them. YMMV
