Intrusion prevention events

For general best practices related to events, see About Deep Security event logging.

To see the intrusion prevention events captured by Deep Security, go to Events & Reports > Events > Intrusion Prevention Events.

What information is displayed for intrusion prevention events?

These columns can be displayed on the Intrusion Prevention Events page. You can click Columns to select which columns are displayed in the table.

  • Time: Time the event took place on the computer.
  • Computer: The computer on which this event was logged. (If the computer has been removed, this entry will read "Unknown Computer".)
  • Reason: The intrusion prevention rule associated with this event.
  • Tag(s): Any tags attached with the event.
  • Application Type: The application type associated with the intrusion prevention rule which caused this event.
  • Action: What action the intrusion prevention rule took (Block or Reset). If the rule is in Detect Only mode, the action is prefaced with "Detect Only:").
    Intrusion prevention rules created before Deep Security 7.5 SP1 could also perform Insert, Replace, and Delete actions. These actions are no longer performed. If an older rule is triggered and attempts to perform those actions, the event will indicate that the rule was applied in detect-only mode.
  • Rank: The ranking system provides a way to quantify the importance of intrusion prevention and firewall events. By assigning "asset values" to computers, and assigning "severity values" to intrusion prevention rules and firewall rules, the importance ("rank") of an event is calculated by multiplying the two values together. This allows you to sort events by rank when viewing intrusion prevention or firewall events.
  • Severity: The intrusion prevention rule's severity value.
  • Direction: The direction of the packet (incoming or outgoing)
  • Flow: whether the packets(s) that triggered this event was travelling with ("Connection Flow") or against ("Reverse Flow") the direction of traffic being monitored by the intrusion prevention rule.
  • Interface: The MAC address of the interface through which the packet was passing.
  • Frame Type: The frame type of the packet in question. Possible values are "IPV4", "IPV6", "ARP", "REVARP", and "Other: XXXX" where XXXX represents the four digit hex code of the frame type.
  • Protocol: Possible values are "ICMP", "ICMPV6", "IGMP", "GGP", "TCP", "PUP", "UDP", "IDP", "ND", "RAW", "TCP+UDP", AND "Other: nnn" where nnn represents a three digit decimal value.
  • Flags: Flags set in the packet.
  • Source IP: The packet's source IP.
  • Source MAC: The packet's source MAC address.
  • Source Port: The packet's source port.
  • Destination IP: The packet's destination IP address.
  • Destination MAC: The packet's destination MAC address.
  • Destination Port: The packet's destination port.
  • Packet Size: The size of the packet in bytes.
  • Repeat Count: The number of times the event was sequentially repeated.
  • Time (microseconds): Microsecond resolution for the time the event took place on the computer.
  • Event Origin: The Deep Security component from which the event originated.

The following columns are also available. They display information for events that are triggered from containers on computers that are protected by Deep Security Agent 12 FR or newer:

  • Interface Type: Container interface type.
  • Container Name: Name of the container where the event occurred.
  • Container ID: Container ID of the container where the event occurred.
  • Image Name: Image name that was used to create the container where the event occurred.
  • RepoDigest: A unique digest that identifies the container image.
  • Process Name: Name of the process (from the container) that caused the event.

List of all intrusion prevention events

ID Event Notes
200 Region Too Big A region (edit region, uri etc) exceeded the maximum allowed buffering size (7570 bytes) without being closed. This is usually because the data does not conform to the protocol.
201 Insufficient Memory The packet could not be processed properly because resources were exhausted. This can be because there are too many concurrent connections at the same time or simply because the system is out of memory.
202 Maximum Edits Exceeded The maximum number of edits (32) in a single region of a packet was exceeded.
203 Edit Too Large Editing attempted to increase the size of the region above the maximum allowed size (8188 bytes).
204 Max Matches in Packet Exceeded There are more than 2048 positions in the packet with pattern match occurrences. An error is returned at this limit and the connection is dropped because this usually indicates a garbage or evasive packet.
205 Engine Call Stack Too Deep
206 Runtime Error Runtime error.
207 Packet Read Error Low level problem reading packet data.
258 Fail Open: Reset Log the connection that should be reset but not when Fail-Open feature is on and in Inline mode
300 Unsupported Cipher An unknown or unsupported Cipher Suite has been requested.
301 Error Generating Master Key(s) Unable to derive the cryptographic keys, Mac secrets, and initialization vectors from the master secret.
302 Record Layer Message (not ready) The SSL state engine has encountered an SSL record before initialization of the session.
303 Handshake Message (not ready) The SSL state engine has encountered a handshake message after the handshake has been negotiated.
304 Out Of Order Handshake Message A well formatted handshake message has been encountered out of sequence.
305 Memory Allocation Error The packet could not be processed properly because resources were exhausted. This can be because there are too many concurrent connections at the same time or simply because the system is out of memory.
306 Unsupported SSL Version A client attempted to negotiate an SSL V2 session.
307 Error Decrypting Pre-master Key Unable to un-wrap the pre-master secret from the ClientKeyExchange message.
308 Client Attempted to Rollback A client attempted to rollback to an earlier version of the SSL protocol than that which was specified in the ClientHello message.
309 Renewal Error An SSL session was being requested with a cached session key that could not be located.
310 Key Exchange Error The server is attempting to establish an SSL session with temporarily generated key.
311 Maximum SSL Key Exchanges Exceeded The maximum number of concurrent key exchange requests was exceeded.
312 Key Too Large The master secret keys are larger than specified by the protocol identifier.
313 Invalid Parameters In Handshake An invalid or unreasonable value was encountered while trying to decode the handshake protocol.
314 No Sessions Available
315 Compression Method Unsupported
316 Unsupported Application-Layer Protocol An unknown or unsupported SSL Application-Layer Protocol has been requested.
386 Fail Open: Reset Log the connection that should be reset but not when Fail-Open feature is on and in Tap mode.
500 URI Path Depth Exceeded Too many "/" separators. Max 100 path depth.
501 Invalid Traversal Tried to use "../" above root.
502 Illegal Character in URI Illegal character used in uri.
503 Incomplete UTF8 Sequence URI ended in middle of utf8 sequence.
504 Invalid UTF8 encoding Invalid or non-canonical encoding attempt.
505 Invalid Hex Encoding %nn where nn are not hex digits.
506 URI Path Length Too Long Path length is greater than 512 characters.
507 Invalid Use of Character Use of disabled characters
508 Double Decoding Exploit Double decoding exploit attempt (%25xx, %25%xxd, etc).
700 Invalid Base64 Content Packet content that was expected to be encoded in Base64 format was not encoded correctly.
710 Corrupted Deflate/GZIP Content Packet content that was expected to be encoded in Base64 format was not encoded correctly.
711 Incomplete Deflate/GZIP Content Incomplete Deflate/GZIP content
712 Deflate/GZIP Checksum Error Deflate/GZIP checksum error.
713 Unsupported Deflate/GZIP Dictionary Unsupported Deflate/GZIP dictionary.
714 Unsupported GZIP Header Format/Method Unsupported GZIP header format or method.
801 Protocol Decoding Search Limit Exceeded A protocol decoding rule defined a limit for a search or pdu object but the object was not found before the limit was reached.
802 Protocol Decoding Constraint Error A protocol decoding rule decoded data that did not meet the protocol content constraints.
803 Protocol Decoding Engine Internal Error
804 Protocol Decoding Structure Too Deep A protocol decoding rule encountered a type definition and packet content that caused the maximum type nesting depth (16) to be exceeded.
805 Protocol Decoding Stack Error A rule programming error attempted to cause recursion or use to many nested procedure calls.
806 Infinite Data Loop Error
