This implementation describes how to secure FTP traffic. When you create an FTP security profile, the BIG-IP® Protocol Security Module™ inspects FTP traffic for network vulnerabilities. To activate security checks for FTP traffic, you enable FTP security for an FTP service profile, and associate the service profile with a virtual server.
You can configure the Protocol Security Module to generate alarms or block requests for the following FTP security risks:
|Alarm||The system logs any requests that trigger the violation.|
|Block||The system blocks any requests that trigger the violation.|
|Alarm and Block||The system both logs and blocks any requests that trigger the violation.|
