Hi community,

I would like to document a generic set of minimum functional requirements when implementing IPS/IDS and Firewall technologies for network teams to follow. Any design solutions would also take into consideration customer contract obligation's  if they have been specified. The problem often encountered is when customer IPS/IDS contractual obligations are not specified but simply state it is a requirement. As a result I'm often asked what are the minimum baseline requirements?

I've reviewed GPG8, but again didn't really find anything specifically aimed at minimum functional requirements. Some of the premium brands such as FireEye and AlienVault offer solutions available when their products are purchased which is fine but I would like to be able to perform cross platform analysis regardless of the vendor.

Does anyone else have a similar situation or able to offer any minimum IPS/IDS design requirements? Any feedback would be gratefully received.

Many Thanks - Gray
