Summary

The TippingPoint Reputation Database is a collection of IP addresses and DNS names on an SMS that represent a potential risks to network security. Entries may be user provided, Reputation DV provided, or both. Entries in the Reputation Database can be tagged or untagged. A tagged entry consists of an IP or DNS address plus a reputation tag category and associated values.

A tag category can be created manually or by the Reputation DV Tag categories created by the reputation service are read-only and may not be modified. Entries can also be imported from a csv file and must follow specific import Reputation rules. Untagged entries contain only an IP or DNS address and function as a Black List. Reputation entries in the Reputation Database are used to create Reputation filters that target specific security needs of your network.
