AIP-SSM, it is not sensing the traffic

Re: AIP-SSM, it is not sensing the traffic

I've got the same problem over here...

The licence is not yet arrived but wanted to test de AIP.


Re: AIP-SSM, it is not sensing the traffic

Unless you are scanning across the ASA, the SSM module will not "see" the scan and cannot produce events. To alarm on an SSM module, you must scan from one network to another. Basically, the SSM cannot do promiscuous monitoring. I would recommend an IPS appliance if you want to monitor traffic sent between hosts of the same network.

** Pls rate if this helps **

Re: AIP-SSM, it is not sensing the traffic

I solved my "problem".

I hadn't added a real interface to the Virtual Sensor (vs0).

Now my configuration is working!

This all without a license
