Re: Why the IPS product designers concentrate on server side protection? why they are missing client protection

You're missing one point: Host IPS MUST be deployed with any Network  
Security (Firewalls os NIPSs).

No security solution/technology is the miracle protection alone, so  
that's the reason everybody is talking about defense in depth.

Cheers.

Hi List,

I am putting my thoughts on this, please share your thoughts,  
comments.

Request length is less than the response length.So, processing small  
amount of data is better than of processing bulk data. Response may  
have encrypted data. Buffering all the client-server transactions  
and validating signatures on them is difficult. Even though  
buffered, client data may not be in the plain text. Embedding all  
the client encryption/decryption process on the fly is not possible,  
even though ips gathered key values of clients.Most of the client  
protection is done by anti-virus. So, concentrating client attacks  
at IPS level is not so needed.


Thanks
Rajendra
