IPS functionality testing

L3 Networker

We are looking to do a live demo of PAN devices to some leads . Does anybody have tool we can use to demonstrate the IPS functionality in real time .Putting the box through a wide range of attacks .  App ID is pretty easy but Checkpoint now does application visibility . I have heard about metaploit . I havent seen a windows version u could easily use . Not a linux person .Looking for a free tool .

I can not think of any tools for windows offhand but there are a few manual tests you vcan run.

1) Surf the http://eicar.org/ site and download the malware file.

2) Go to any website using HTTP and find a place that allows text and type <script>alert(XSS test)</script>

There are quite a few examples on the web. But since we are not a Web App firewall there will be some XSS attacks that the paloalto will not detect. Make sure you test your examples in the lab first before demonstrating to the customer.
