Migrating policies from Host Intrusion Prevention

You can migrate custom policies and Linux rules from Host Intrusion Prevention version 8 with patch 10 and later so that you can continue to apply the same rules to your managed systems from Endpoint Security for Linux Threat Prevention.

Custom policies from Host Intrusion Prevention are migrated to Access Protection in Endpoint Security for Linux. You can use the automatic or the manual mode for migrating the custom policies. For migrating custom policies from Host Intrusion Prevention to Endpoint Security for Linux Threat Prevention, you must upgrade Endpoint Security for Linux Threat Prevention to 10.5, then migrate the policies.

The custom policies created using the Host Intrusion Prevention GeneralCategoryTrusted Applications and Host Intrusion Prevention IPSCategoryIPS Rules/IPS Protection can be migrated to Endpoint Security for Linux Access Protection.

The policies created in Host Intrusion Prevention General (Trusted Applications) can be migrated only in the automatic mode. The policies in Host Intrusion Prevention IPS (IPS Rules and IPS Protection) can be migrated using both automatic and manual modes.

Note:

Host Intrusion Prevention GeneralTrusted Applications can be migrated only when the Mark trusted for IPS (All platforms) option is enabled while creating the policy.
