SMB URI Filtering (Custom Applications)

L4 Transporter

I'm wondering if it is possible to define an 'application' based on an SMB URI path?

Example - I have two shares on a SMB SAN server \\san\public and \\san\secret; is it possible to apply a firewall rule to a Palo device that sits between this server and clients such that access to the shares can be restricted based the destination path, not just the server identity/IP?

The intent is that this would supplement the core ACL functionality on the datastore, serving as a failsafe way of restricting access to network storage in the event that inappropriate ACL rights are granted in error.

I don't believe we have access to the SMB decoder to create an application like that.

At least PAN claims to be able to scan smb traffic for virus. This implies they have a decoder for smb or am I wrong ?



Hi There,

The SMB decoder is currently not available for configuration like the HTTP decoder.

Please contact your local sales team (that'll be me Smiley Happy) to file a feature request apackard.
