updating pix IDS signitures


I am enabling the IDS feature on my pix. what is the process of updating the signiture? Does the cisco updated the signitures at all? is it an anual fee I need to pay for cisco? (as in Checkpoint smart defance?)

thanks a lot !

The only way to update the signatures is to upgrade PIX versions.

There were no signature updates in PIX 6. I believe that some new signatures got added in PIX 7 (relative to PIX 6).

In several years, I found the PIX IDS useful only -once-. The rest of the time, it either produced nothing, or produced lots of messages that were "noise" because they represented constant conditions in the outside network that we had no control over (e.g., people sharing the network and whom had NETBIOS broadcasts turned on.)
