Intrusion Protection Updates and ClearSDN

The ClearSDN Intrusion Protection Updates service provides weekly signature updates to improve the effectiveness of the intrusion prevention system. These signatures are compiled from third party organizations as well as internal engineering resources from ClearCenter. With intrusion prevention, it is important to keep false positives to a minimum. We keep tabs on the latest available updates and fine tune the system so you can focus on more important things.


The Intrusion Prevention system displays a list of IP addresses that have been blocked due to inappropriate network traffic.


IP Address

This is the IP address that triggered the block. If this IP address should not be blocked, you can add it to a “don't block” list by clicking on Whitelist under Action.

Security ID / SID

The SID corresponds to the Intrusion Detection ID that triggered the block.

Block Time

The block time field show when the block occurred.


A blocked host can be added to a Whitelist so it will not be blocked in the future. You can also remove a blocked host using Delete.


If there are IP addresses in your Whitelist they will be listed below the Active Block List. You can delete an entry by choosing Delete under Action.
