What is a characteristic of an IPS atomic signature?
- it can be slow and inefficient to analyze traffic
- it requires several pieces of data to match an attack
- it is a stateful signature
- it is the simplest type of signature
Answers Explanation & Hints:
There are two types of IPS signatures:
Atomic – This is the simplest type of signature because it does not require the IPS to maintain state information and it can identify an attack with a single packet, activity, or event.
Composite – This is a stateful type of signature. It requires that the IPS maintain state information to match an attack signature.
