    SV-80499r1_rule JUSX-IP-000010 CCI-001240 HIGH The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must install updates for predefined signature objects, applications signatures, IDPS policy templates, and device software when new releases are available in accordance with organizational configuration management policy and procedures. Failing to update malicious code protection mechanisms, including application software files, signature definitions, and vendor-provided rules, leaves the system vulnerable to exploitation by recently developed attack methods and programs. The IDPS is a
    SV-80867r1_rule JUSX-IP-000001 CCI-000169 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must provide audit record generation capability for detecting events based on implementation of policy filters, rules, and signatures. Without the capability to generate audit records, it would be difficult to establish, correlate, and investigate the events relating to an incident, or identify those responsible for one. While auditing and logging are closely related, they are not the s
    SV-80873r1_rule JUSX-IP-000002 CCI-001368 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must enforce approved authorizations by restricting or blocking the flow of harmful or suspicious communications traffic within the network as defined in the PPSM CAL and vulnerability assessments. The flow of all communications traffic must be monitored and controlled so it does not introduce any unacceptable risk to the network infrastructure or data. Restricting the flow of communications traffic, also known as Information flow control, regulate
    SV-80875r1_rule JUSX-IP-000003 CCI-001414 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must restrict or block harmful or suspicious communications traffic between interconnected networks based on attribute- and content-based inspection of the source, destination, headers, and/or content of the communications traffic. The IDPS enforces approved authorizations by controlling the flow of information between interconnected networks to prevent harmful or suspicious traffic does spread to these interconnected networks.

    SV-80877r1_rule JUSX-IP-000004 CCI-000169 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must provide audit record generation with a configurable severity and escalation level capability. Without the capability to generate audit records with a severity code it is difficult to track and handle detection events. While auditing and logging are closely related, they are not the same. Logging is recording data about events that take place in a

    SV-80893r1_rule JUSX-IP-000008 CCI-001166 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must detect, at a minimum, mobile code that is unsigned or exhibiting unusual behavior, has not undergone a risk assessment, or is prohibited for use based on a risk assessment. Mobile code is defined as software modules obtained from remote systems, transferred across a network, and then downloaded and executed on a local system without explicit installation or execution by the recipient. Examples of mobile code include JavaScri
    SV-80895r1_rule JUSX-IP-000009 CCI-001662 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must block any prohibited mobile code at the enclave boundary when it is detected.

    SV-80915r1_rule JUSX-IP-000023 CCI-002664 MEDIUM The IDPS must send an alert to, at a minimum, the ISSO and ISSM when intrusion detection events are detected that indicate a compromise or potential for compromise. Without an alert, security personnel may be unaware of intrusion detection incidents that require immediate action and this delay may result in the loss or compromise of information. In accordance with CCI-001242, the IDPS is a real-time intrusion detect
    SV-80917r1_rule JUSX-IP-000024 CCI-002664 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must generate an alert to, at a minimum, the ISSO and ISSM when root-level intrusion events that provide unauthorized privileged access are detected. Without an alert, security personnel may be unaware of major detection incidents that require immediate action and this delay may result in the loss or compromise of information.

    SV-80921r1_rule JUSX-IP-000026 CCI-001247 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must automatically install updates to signature definitions.

    SV-80923r1_rule JUSX-IP-000027 CCI-001242 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must perform real-time monitoring of files from external sources at network entry/exit points. Real-time monitoring of files from external sources at network entry/exit points helps to detect covert malicious code before it is downloaded to or executed by internal and external endpoints. Using malicious code, such as viruses, worms, Trojan horses,
    SV-80925r1_rule JUSX-IP-000028 CCI-001243 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must drop packets or disconnect the connection when malicious code is detected. Configuring the IDPS to discard and/or redirect based on local organizational incident handling procedures minimizes the impact of this code on the network. Once an attack object in the IPS policy is matched, the SRX can execute an action on that specifi
    SV-80927r1_rule JUSX-IP-000029 CCI-001243 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must send an immediate alert to, at a minimum, the Security Control Auditor (SCA) when malicious code is detected. Without an alert, security personnel may be unaware of an impending failure of the audit capability, and the ability to perform forensic analysis and detect rate-based and other anomalies will be impeded. The IDPS generates an immediate (within seconds)
    SV-80929r1_rule JUSX-IP-000030 CCI-000366 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must have only active Juniper Networks licenses. If the IDP or UTM licenses are allowed to lapse, the Juniper SRX IDPS can still inspect traffic and continue to use the outdated signature database for rules, objects, and dynamic groups. However, updates to the signature database cannot be downloaded fro
    SV-80931r1_rule JUSX-IP-000031 CCI-000366 MEDIUM The Juniper Networks SRX Series Gateway IDPS must either forward the traffic from inbound connections to be more deeply inspected for malicious code and Layer 7 threats, or the Antivirus and Unified Threat Management (UTM) license must be installed, active, and policies and rules configured. UTM is an industry term that was coined to define Layer 7 protection against client-side threats. This does not include IPS (which also has protection against server-to-client attacks) but rather technologies such as network-based antivirus protection, UR
