Security profile testing

L2 Linker

I am currently building out more granular policies that have application groups applied as well as security profiles for AV, malware, vulnerability and URL filtering. I will be applying these to a test firewall and would like to build out a test plan to ensure they are working as expected.

I just wanted to run this by the community to see if perhaps there were any recommendations on testing the AV, malware and vulnerability side of things?

Hello @Jamesy 


I would suggest going through the best practices, you can find the documents here:

Hi Himani,


I have gone through the best practice docs and used these to build the profiles and policies. I would like to be able to test these before applying them in production. I want to have a checklist to ensure that they profiles don't a) cause any blockages to traffic and b) are blocking malicious/ unsanctioned traffic as intended.
