Blocking brute force SSH to firewall

Blocking brute force SSH to firewall

For various business reasons I need to allow SSH directly to a PA-3020 to manage the unit.  Is there a way to apply a vulenerability policy to this traffic so that I can block bruteforce attacks?

Is it possible to setup a vpn tunnel for yourself, then ssh to an inside management ip? I would be careful opening any external port up for management, especially if you use local authentication credentials.

Hope the above attachment will answer your question.



# You can call this vulnaribility profile in the intrested security policy ( if the traffic is from unt to unt or a intrazone traffic )
# Please create a seperate security policy as default intrazone profile will not contain this Vul. Profile.
#Clone a default one to make the changes as in default one you will not be able to make any changes.


# Default action is alert, Change the action and number of attempts as per your needs.


Thank you
