WLC Standard Signatures

Unanswered Question
Dec 3rd, 2008


According to Cisco, the WLC has 17 built-in standard attack signatures.

In order for IPS signatures updates etc, a separate cisco IPS is to be used. Due to budget constrains, my client is eliminating buying a cisco IPS.

There is a request for me to show that the existing standard 17 signatures do work on the WLC.

A few signatures includes:

1. Broadcast Deauthentication Frame

2. Association/Authentication Request Flood

3. Deauthentication Flood.

May i know how i can simulate these attacks so that it get picked up by the WLC

I have this problem too.

THanks for your information

Did u also only have the standard 17 signatures on your WLC? I assume by enabling "Enable check for all Standard and Custom Signatures" does it all, any attacks will be shown on the trap logs
