Creating security policies

A security policy consists of audit and protection rule sets. Each rule set is a set of security rules, which can be made private, i.e., specific to a policy, or shared among several policies.

For further information on security policies, refer to Understanding security policies.

Several versions of policies or rule sets can coexist and you can choose which version to use at any time. For further information, refer to the section Managing versions of a policy or a rule set.

Before you create security rules for your policy, create application, driver and network IDs first. For more information, refer to the section Creating identifiers.

To build your policy based on the default built-in rules provided by Stormshield (i.e., Default Policy), or based on your own rules, follow the instructions below.

You must hold the Policies-Modify privilege to create and modify security policies and identifiers.
