Testing CSA effectiveness

I have been running CSA now for a while and would like to hear from others on the way they test CSA effectiveness. In other words, what's your approach to testing a host protected with CSA to see how well it defends? I want to make sure my policies are good enough and that I am as well protected as I can be for a zero-day flaw.

Re: Testing CSA effectiveness

Stick a machine on an unprotected DSL connection, simulate an attack with a port scanner or grab some virii from your stash (you have a stash from past attacks, right?).

That and real life are how I've tested. You can also find test exploits looking on the web and sometimes from security sites like SANS and Secunia.

Good luck!
