WLC Standard Signatures Update

Unanswered Question

Hi, I have a WLC n WCS and 6x 1252AP on my current setup.

There are 17 default Standard Signatures on the WLC.

I would like to know whether updated signatures can be downloaded manually from Cisco website, and tftp into the WLC.

According to cisco readups, we can customize the signatures ourselves and upload to the WLC. Which is such a hassle & not feasible option for us.

My customer is concerned where if its possible to have regular signature updates from Cisco, instead of customizing it ourselves.

Cisco wIPS and actual IPS not considered in this setup.

Please advise

This IDS is for 802.11. There is no so many new attack for 802.11. Other are quite well documented. IDS signatures are updtate with controller software update.

hi Grey, thanks for your information.

Let me get this straight.

I am now running Software Version:

Meaning to say, if i were to upgrade it to 5.2 ill be getting the latest updated signatures? And also limited to 17 Signatures?
