When does the Cisco ASA IPS module inspect traffic?
Below is an article I found (Got side tracked when looking up if CEF supports IPv6 or if it punts additional IP headers to the CPU – next post perhaps?) about how and when the Cisco IPS inspects traffic.
I found IDS and IPS was one of the more interesting topics covered in the CCNA Security Curriculum, so much in fact that I set up my own IPS with an old Procurv box running Security Onion (Check it out, it’s amazing!). I digress, check out the article!
