Import Detection Rules#

Now Lets add some rules!

There is two ways to add IDS Rules to IDSTower, the easies way is to enable one of the pre-integrated rules feeds, this will insure that these rules will be auto updated.

To enable one of the rule feeds Click on Settings->Feeds Tab, Then Enable one of the Rules feeds. for example here we enabled the Emerging Threats Open Ruleset feed


In a couple of minutes the feeds will be downloaded and the rules will be imported, you will be able to view them by Clicking on Rules on the left menu.

The other option is to manually import the rules files via Rules -> Add/Import Rules -> Bulk Import Rules From File.
