Managing Digital Vaccines (DV) via the LSM on the TPS!

    • Updated:
    • 22 Dec 2017
    • Product/Version:
    • TippingPoint TPS All
    • TippingPoint TX-Series All
    • TippingPoint Virtual TPS All
    • Platform:

From the LSM, you can manage digital vaccine filter packages from the System > Update > System, DV, Licenses pages. The System > Update > System, DV, Licenses page gives you the information on the current software status of the TPS device.

You can download and install DV updates from the Install Package page, and configure automatic DV updates from the Auto DV Update page. When downloading and installing a Digital Vaccine package, verify that the package you download is not larger than the listed amount of free space. An unpacked package may require more space than anticipated, depending on your device model, saved snapshots and rollback versions, and the size of the available update. To make sure the device has enough disk space, you can delete previously installed software images from the Update page.

Updating the Digital Vaccine (Filters)

When new types of network attack are discovered, or when detection methods for existing threats improve, the Digital Vaccine team at the Threat Management Center (TMC) creates and releases new filters to add to your filter database. These filters are released as Digital Vaccine (DV) packages. When a new DV package is available for download, the TMC team sends notifications to existing customers. You have two options to update the DV on your device:

  • Configure the Auto DV option on your device so that the device checks for new DV packages and automatically updates the device as necessary.
  • Manually download and install the DV package.

Note: You cannot rollback to a previous Digital Vaccine version. If you want to use a previous version of a Digital Vaccine, download an older version of the Digital Vaccine package from the TMC.
