Testing Requirements

There is a three-fold focus in ICSA Labs network IPS testing -- provide ongoing vulnerability-based coverage protection for high severity vulnerabilities in enterprise software -- introduce a minimal amount of latency -- and provide logging, authentication, and other administrative functions.  

The testing standard against which IPS products are measured is the network IPS testing criteria.  To attain and/or retain certification, network IPS products must meet the entire set of criteria requirements when tested.  ICSA Labs welcomes any comments and suggestions that you may have on this set of IPS criteria requirements.
