FPCNetworkInspectionSystem object

Applies to: desktop apps only

The FPCNetworkInspectionSystem object provides methods and properties for configuring the Network Inspection System (NIS).

NIS uses signatures of known vulnerabilities to detect and potentially block attacks based on exploits of such vulnerabilities in network traffic that uses specific application-level protocols, preventing protocol abuse. By providing signature-based protection against vulnerabilities, NIS closes the window between the disclosure of vulnerabilities and the development and deployment of patches from serveral weeks to a few hours.

This FPCNetworkInspectionSystem object is accessed through the NetworkInspectionSystem property of an FPCArray object.

Inheritance

This object inherits from the FPCPersist object, which contains methods and properties related to the persistent storage of an object's data. They include methods for exporting the object's data to and importing it from an XML document.

Members

The FPCNetworkInspectionSystem object has these types of members:

Methods

MethodDescription
ActivateSignatureSet

Activates the most recent signature set or a specified available signature set.

ResetConfiguration

Resets the configuration of the Network Inspection System (NIS) signatures.

 

Properties

The FPCNetworkInspectionSystem object has these properties.

PropertyAccess typeDescription

ActiveSignatureSet

Read-only

Gets an FPCNisSignatureSet object that specifies the active signature set.

AvailableSignatureSets

Read-only

Gets an FPCNisAvailableSignatureSets collection that contains all available signature sets.

Enabled

Read/write

Gets or sets a Boolean value that indicates whether the Network Inspection System (NIS) is enabled.

ExcludedHttpDomainNameSets

Read-only

Gets an FPCRefs collection that contains references to the FPCDomainNameSet collections defining the destination HTTP domain name sets for which the Network Inspection System (NIS) is disabled.

ExcludedIPs

Read-only

Gets an FPCSelectionIPs object that specifies the IP addresses for which the Network Inspection System (NIS) is disabled.

InitialSignatureConfiguration

Read/write

Gets or sets a value from the FpcNisInitialSignatureConfiguration enumerated type that specifies the initial configuration for new signatures.

MostRecentSignatureSetUsed

Read-only

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the most recent signature set is used.

ProtocolAnomaliesPolicy

Read/write

Gets or sets a value from the FpcNisProtocolAnomaliesPolicy enumerated type that indicates the Network Inspection System (NIS) policy for protocol anomalies.

ProtocolsInspectedOnLocalHost

Read-only

Gets an FPCRefs collection that contains references to the FPCProtocolDefinition objects defining the protocols which the Network Inspection System (NIS) will inspect on the local host.

 

Methods Inherited from FPCPersist

NameDescription
CancelWaitForChanges Cancels the registration established by the WaitForChanges method (for use in C and C++ programming only).
CanImport Returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the object's properties can be imported from the specified XML document.
Export Writes the stored values of all of the object's properties to the specified XML document.
ExportToFile Writes the stored values of all of the object's properties to the specified XML file.
GetServiceRestartMask Retrieves a 32-bit bitmask of the FpcServices enumerated type that specifies which services need to be restarted for currently unsaved changes to take effect.
Import Copies the values of all of the object's properties from the specified XML document to persistent storage.
ImportFromFile Copies the values of all of the object's properties from the specified XML file to persistent storage.
LoadDocProperties Provides the XML document's properties so that you can know what information can be imported from the document.
Refresh Reads the values of all of the object's properties from persistent storage, overwriting any changes that have not been saved.
Save Writes the current values of all of the object's properties to persistent storage.
WaitForChanges Registers to wait for an event indicating that the contents of the object have changed (for use in C and C++ programming only).

 

Properties Inherited from FPCPersist

NameDescription
PersistentName Gets the persistent name of the object. The persistent name of an object is a name that is unique for the object at the respective level of the COM object hierarchy.
VendorParameterSets Gets an FPCVendorParametersSets object that can hold sets of custom data for extending the object.
