Using the Intrusion Prevention System in MultiNet V5.3

Free registration required

Executive Summary

One of the interesting new features in MultiNet V5.3 is a security mechanism called the "Intrusion Prevention System". With IPS one can configure MultiNet to detect intrusion attempts and then block further access from the remote system that is the source of the attack. Here at VSM Software Services one runs an AlphaServer DS20E to provide services to customers on the Internet including DNS, webserving and email. The paper also allows incoming FTP and SSH access for server management and customer website maintenance. There's no doubt that the Internet has become a hostile place, even for servers running OpenVMS. In operating these services one regularly see VMS breaking events logged by MultiNet's SSH and FTP servers and by PMDF's POP3, IMAP and SMTP servers.
