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

Okay, but why did you mention AV as a client-side protection?

It leads to a discussion about client-side protection, anyways.

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
