IDS Signature List Export Table

Does anybody have a list of all the IDS signatures in an exportable format? I'm looking for a table that has the Signature/SubID, Alarm Level, Signature Type, Signature Structure, Implementation, and description.

With that it would be easy to create txt config files for setting the Signature responses (and without all the WWW-clicking).

The Secure Encyclopedia doesn't have the list in a downloadable format.

Not exactly what you could be looking for but I use this:

I've seen that. But what I'm looking for would be a text document (or spreadsheet) of the information.

From that, I can build a config file to set all the alerts we want for all the signatures, and easily apply it to other cisco IDS boxes, as well as the one we'll test on our next DRP drill!

Are you running version 4.x?

If so then try the following:

configure terminal

service virtual-sensor-configuration virtualSensor


show settings | include SIGID|SubSig|AlarmSeverity|EventAction|SigName|Enabled

You could then add any other fields by adding another "|" followed by the field name.
