The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must block outbound traffic containing known and unknown DoS attacks by ensuring that anomaly-based attack objects are applied to outbound communications traffic.


Finding ID Version Rule ID IA Controls Severity
V-66401 JUSX-IP-000007 SV-80891r1_rule Medium
The IDPS must include protection against DoS attacks that originate from inside the enclave which can affect either internal or external systems. These attacks may use legitimate or rogue endpoints from inside the enclave. To perform anomaly-based attacks on the Juniper SRX IDPS device, create an anomaly-based attack object.

Check Text ( C-67047r1_chk )
From operational mode, enter the following command to verify that the anomaly-based attack object was created.

show idp security policies

If anomaly-based attack objects are not created, bound to a zone, and active, this is a finding.
Fix Text (F-72477r1_fix)
Create a protocol anomaly-based attack object:

Specify a name for the attack.
