For convenience, SmartDefense is organized as a tree, in which each branch represents a category of settings.
When a category is expanded, the settings it contains appear as nodes. For information on each category and the nodes it contains, see SmartDefense Categories.
Each node represents an attack type, a sanity check, or a protocol or service that is vulnerable to attacks. To control how SmartDefense handles a specific attack, you must configure the relevant node's settings.
To configure a SmartDefense node
The SmartDefense page appears.
The left pane displays a tree containing SmartDefense categories.
The right pane displays a description of the node, followed by fields.
A confirmation message appears.
The fields are reset to their default values, and your changes are saved.
