Modification

6.0(1)

This command was introduced.

 
Usage Guidelines

An error is generated if anomaly detection is not active when you execute this command. You cannot overwrite the initial KB file. If the KB filename already exists, whether you choose a new name or use the default, the old KB file is overwritten.

There is a limit on the size the KB file can occupy. If a new KB is generated, and this limit is reached, the oldest KB (assuming it is not current or initial) is deleted.


Note This command is IPS-specific. There is no related IOS command in Release 12.0 or earlier.


Examples

The following example saves the current KB and stores it as my-kb:

sensor# anomaly-detection vs0 save my-kb
sensor#
 

attemptLimit

To lock accounts so that users cannot keep trying to log in after a certain number of failed attempts, use the attemptLimit number command in authentication submode. The default is 0, which indicates unlimited authentication attempts. For security purposes, you should change this number.

attemptLimit number

 
Syntax Description

attemptLimit

Sets the limit on how many times a user can try to log in to the sensor.

number

Specifies the number of failed attempts before the account is locked.

 
Defaults

See the Syntax Description table for the default values.

 
Command Modes

Modification

5.0

This command was introduced.

 
Usage Guidelines

The attemptLimit command provides a way for an administrator to set the limit on how many times a user can try to log in to the sensor before the account is locked. A locked account is indicated by parenthesis in the show users all output.

When you configure account locking, local authentication, as well as RADIUS authentication, is affected. After a specified number of failed attempts to log in locally or in to a RADIUS account, the account is locked locally on the sensor. For local accounts, you can reset the password or use the unlock user username command to unlock the account. For RADIUS user accounts, you must use the unlock user username command to unlock the account.


Note For RADIUS users, the attempt limit feature is enforced only after the RADIUS user’s first successful login to the sensor.


Examples

The following example sets the attempt limit to 3 times.

sensor# configure terminal
sensor(config)# service authentication
sensor(config-aut)# attemptLimit 3

(Optional) Specifies the virtual sensor configured on the sensor.

name

(Optional) The name of the virtual sensor configured on the sensor. This is a case-sensitive character string containing 1 to 64 characters. Valid characters are A-Z, a-z, 0-9, “-” and “_.” If you do not provide the virtual sensor name, the attacker is denied for all virtual sensors.

ip-address

Specifies the attacker IP address to deny.

attacker-ip-address

The attacker IP address to deny. The IP address can be in the form of IPv4 or IPv6.

victim

Specifies the victim IP address to deny.

victim-ip-address

Modification

6.1(1)

This command was introduced.

6.2(0)

Added support for both IPv4 or IPv6 in the ip-address parameter.

 
Usage Guidelines

Use the deny attacker command to deny a specific attacker IP address. If you use the no form of this command without the parameters, all attackers currently being denied in the system are deleted.


Note This command does not exist in Cisco IOS Release 12.0 or earlier.


Examples

The following example adds a deny attacker with the IP address 10.1.1.1 and victim with the IP address 10.2.2.2 for virtual sensor vs0:

sensor# deny attacker ip-address virtual-sensor vs0 ip-address 10.1.1.1 victim 10.2.2.2
sensor#
 

The following example removes the denied attacker from the list of attackers currently being denied by the system for all virtual sensors:

sensor# deny attacker ip-address 10.1.1.1 victim 10.2.2.2
Warning: Executing this command will delete this address from the list of attackers being denied by all virtual sensors.
Continue? [yes]: yes

Usage Guidelines

Using the display-serial command lets you view system messages on a remote console (using the serial port) during the boot process. The local console is not available as long as this option is enabled. Unless you set this option when you are connected to the serial port, you do not get any feedback until Linux has fully booted and enabled support for the serial connection.

Examples

The following example redirects output to the serial port:

sensor(config)# display-serial
sensor(config)#

Filters the show command output so that it excludes lines that contain a particular regular expression.

show include

Filters the show command output so that it displays only lines that contain a particular regular expression.

packet

To display or capture live traffic on an interface, use the packet command in EXEC mode. Use the display option to dump live traffic or a previously captured file output directly to the screen. Use the capture option to capture the libpcap output into a local file. There is only one local file storage location, subsequent capture requests overwrite the existing file. You can copy the local file off the machine using the copy command with the packet-file keyword. You can view the local file using the display packet-file option. Use the info option to display information about the local file, if any. Use the packet display iplog id [verbose] [expression expression] to display iplogs.

packet display interface-name [snaplen length] [count count] [verbose] [expression expression]

packet display packet-file [verbose] [expression expression]

packet display iplog id [verbose] [expression expression] vlan and

packet capture interface-name [snaplen length] [count count] [expression expression]

packet display file-info

 
Syntax Description

display

Displays the packet on the screen.

interface-name

Interface name, interface type followed by slot/port. You are allowed to enter only a valid interface name existing in the system.

snaplen

(Optional) Specifies to use snapshot length.

length

(Optional) Snapshot length. The default is 0. A valid range is 0 to 1600.

count

(Optional) Specifies to capture packets.

count

(Optional) Number of packets to capture. If not specified, the capture terminates after the maximum file size has been captured. The valid range is 1 to 10000.

verbose

(Optional) Displays the protocol tree for each packet rather than a one-line summary.

expression

(Optional) Specifies to use an expression to filter the packet.

expression

(Optional) Packet capture filter expression. This expression is passed directly to tcpdump and must meet the tcpdump expression syntax.

id

Existing IP log ID to display.

file-info

Displays information about the stored packet file.

vlan and

Matches packets with VLAN headers.

 
Defaults

This command has no default behavior or values.

5.0(1)

This command was introduced.

 
Usage Guidelines

Storage is available for one local file. The size of this file varies depending on the platform. If possible, a message is displayed if the maximum file size is reached before the requested packet count is captured. Only one user can use the packet capture interface-name command at a time. A second user request results in an error message containing information about the user executing the capture. A configuration change involving the interface can result in abnormal termination of any packet command running on that interface.


Note This command is IPS-specific. There is no related IOS command in version 12.0 or earlier.



Caution Executing this command causes significant performance degradation.


Note If you use the expression option when monitoring packets with VLAN headers, the expression does not match properly unless vlan and is added to the beginning of the expression. For example, packet display iplog 926299444 verbose expression icmp Will NOT show ICMP packets; packet display iplog 926299444 verbose expression vlan and icmp WILL show ICMP packets. It is often necessary to use expression vlan and on the ASA 5500 AIP SSC-5, IDSM2, and IPS appliance interfaces connected to trunk ports.


Press Ctrl-C to terminate the live display or file capture.

The expression syntax is described in the ethereal-filter man page.

The file-info displays:

Captured by: user:id, Cmd: cliCmd

Start: yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss zone, End: yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss zone or in-progress

Where

user = Username of user initiating capture,

id = User’s CLI ID,

cliCmd = Command entered to perform the capture.

Usage Guidelines

The sensor automatically calls the setup command when you connect to the sensor using a console cable and the sensor basic network settings have not yet been configured. The sensor does not call auto setup under the following conditions:

  • When initialization has already been successfully completed.
  • If you have recovered or downgraded the sensor.
  • If you have set the host configuration to default after successfully configuring the sensor using the auto setup.

When you enter the setup command, an interactive dialog called the System Configuration Dialog appears on the system console screen. The System Configuration Dialog guides you through the configuration process.

The values shown in brackets next to each prompt are the default values last set.

You must run through the entire System Configuration Dialog until you come to the item that you want to change. To accept default settings for items that you do not want to change, press Enter .

To return to the EXEC prompt without making changes and without running through the entire System Configuration Dialog, press Ctrl-C.

The facility also provides help text for each prompt. To access help text, enter the question mark (?) at a prompt.

When you complete your changes, the configuration that was created during the setup session appears. You are prompted to save this configuration. If you enter yes , the configuration is saved to disk. If you enter no , the configuration is not saved and the process begins again. There is no default for this prompt; you must enter either yes or no .

Valid ranges for configurable parameters are as follows:

IP Address/Netmask/Gateway: X.X.X.X/nn,Y.Y.Y.Y , where

X.X.X.X specifies the sensor IP address as a 32-bit address written as four octets separated by periods where X = 0-255.

nn specifies the number of bits in the netmask.

Y.Y.Y.Y specifies the default gateway as a 32-bit address written as four octets separated by periods where Y = 0-255.

Host Name: Case sensitive character string, up to 256 characters. Numbers, “_” and “-” are valid, spaces are not accepted.

Enter the clock settings in setup mode only if the system is not using NTP. NTP commands are provided separately.

You can configure daylight savings time either in recurring mode or date mode. If you select recurring mode, the start and end days are entered based on week, day, month, and time. If you select date mode, the start and end days are entered based on month, day, year, and time. Selecting disable turns off daylight savings time.

Table 2-1 shows the clock setting parameters.

 

Table 2-1 Clock Setting Parameters

DST zone

Name of time zone to be displayed when summer time is in effect.

timezone

Name of the time zone to be displayed when standard time is in effect.

hours

Hours offset from UTC.

hh:mm:ss

Current time in hours (24-hour format), minutes, and seconds.

You can also edit the default virtual sensor, vs0. You can assign promiscuous, inline pairs, and/or inline VLAN pairs to the virtual sensor, which in turn enables the assigned interfaces. After setup is complete, the virtual sensor is configured to monitor traffic.

While in setup, you can enable/disable the overrides rule associated with the deny-packet-inline action. You can modify all instances of event action rules configuration that are assigned to a virtual sensor. Event action rules configuration instances that are not assigned to a virtual sensor are not changed.

If you agree to participate in the SensorBase Network, Cisco will collect aggregated statistics about traffic sent to your IPS. This includes summary data on the Cisco IPS network traffic properties and how this traffic was handled by the Cisco appliances. We do not collect the data content of traffic or other sensitive business or personal information. All data is aggregated and sent via secure HTTP to the Cisco SensorBase Network servers in periodic intervals. All data shared with Cisco will be anonymous and treated as strictly confidential.
 
The table below describes how the data will be used by Cisco.
 
Participation Level = Partial:
* Type of Data: Protocol Attributes (e.g. TCP max nsegment size and options string)
Purpose: Track potential threats and understand threat exposure
* Type of Data: Attack Type (e.g. Signature Fired and Risk Rating)
Purpose: Used to understand current attacks and attack severity
* Type of Data: Connecting IP Address and port
Purpose: Identifies attack source
* Type of Data: Summary IPS performance (CPU utilization memory usage, inline vs. promiscuous, etc)
Purpose: Tracks product efficacy
 
Participation Level = Full:
* Type of Data: Victim IP Address and port
Purpose: Detect threat behavioral patterns

This command was introduced.

 
Usage Guidelines

The * before the filename indicates the KB file that is currently loaded. The current KB always exists (it is the initial KB after installation). It shows the currently loaded KB in anomaly detection, or the one that is loaded if anomaly detection is currently not active.

If you do not provide the virtual sensor, all KB files are retrieved for all virtual sensors.

The initial KB is a KB with factory-configured thresholds.


Note This command is IPS-specific. There is no related IOS command in version 12.0 or earlier.


Examples

The following example displays the KB files available for all virtual sensors. The file 2011-Mar-16-10_00_00 is the current KB file loaded for virtual sensor vs0.

Usage Guidelines

The IP address and virtual sensor are optional. If you specify an IP address, only the OS identification for the specified IP address is reported. Otherwise, all learned OS identifications are reported.

If you specify a virtual sensor, only the OS identification for the specified virtual sensor is displayed; otherwise, the learned OS identifications for all virtual sensors are displayed. If you specify an IP address without a virtual sensor, the output displays all virtual sensors containing the requested IP address.

Examples

The following example displays the OS identification for a specific IP address:

sensor# show os-identification learned 10.1.1.12
Virtual Sensor vs0:
10.1.1.12 windows
 

The following example displays the OS identification for all virtual sensors:

sensor# show os-identification learned
Virtual Sensor vs0:

Removed the password option. Passwords are displayed encrypted.

7.1(8)

Added display of historical interface data for each interface for past 72 hours. Added display of varlog contents.

 
Usage Guidelines

Cisco IOS version 12.0 does not support the destination portion of this command.

The exact format of the destination URL varies according to the file. You can select a filename, but it must be terminated by .html. The following valid types are supported:

Prefix
Source or Destination

ftp:

Destination URL for the FTP network server. The syntax for this prefix is:
ftp://[[username@]location][/relativeDirectory]/filename
ftp://[[username@]location][//absoluteDirectory]/filename

scp:

Destination URL for the SCP network server. The syntax for this prefix is:
scp://[[username@]location][/relativeDirectory]/filename
scp://[[username@]location][//absoluteDirectory]/filename

The report contains HTML-linked output from the following commands:

  • show interfaces
  • show statistics network-access
  • cidDump

Varlog Files

The /var/log/messages file has the latest logs. A new softlink called varlog has been created under the /usr/cids/idsRoot/log folder that points to the /var/log/messages file. Old logs are stored in varlog.1 and varlog.2 files. The maximum size of these varlog files is 200 KB. Once they cross the size limit the content is rotated. The content of varlog, varlog.1, and varlog.2 is displayed in the output of the show tech-support command. The log messages (/usr/cids/idsRoot/varlog files) persist only across sensor reboots. The old logs are lost during software upgrades.

Examples

The following example places the tech support output into the file ~csidsuser/reports/sensor1Report.html . The path is relative to csidsuser’s home account:

sensor# show tech-support destination-url ftp://csidsuser@10.2.1.2/reports/sensor1Report.html
password:*******
 

The following example places the tech support output into the file /absolute/reports/sensor1Report.html :

sensor# show tech-support destination-url ftp://csidsuser@10.2.1.2//absolute/reports/sensor1Report.html
password:*******
