Configuring ASA and SSM

Hi

I am new to cisco box. i have a ASA 5510 with ssm module. i would like to insert this device between the users lan and the server farm. the intension is to block the non legitimate traffic. and need to use the IPS module to detect possible attacks from the users side.

Kindly

guide me through the steps to do the basic configurations for enabling the ssm and the other communication.

Many thanks and regards,

Rajeev

Re: Configuring ASA and SSM

The CSC SSM maintains a file containing signature profiles of suspicious content, updated regularly from an update server at Trend Micro. The CSC SSM scans traffic it receives from the adaptive security appliance and compares it to the content profiles it obtains from Trend Micro. It then forwards legitimate content on to the adaptive security appliance for routing, or blocks and reports content that is suspicious.
