Threat Intelligence

System support to upload some elements in the logs generated by each module to the cloud platform, such as IP address, domain, etc. The cloud platform will check whether the elements have threat intelligence through the threat center. You can view threat intelligence information related to elements through the threat intelligence center.

In the threat list, click the threat intelligence icon to display the threat intelligence of the specified object, or hover your cursor over a object, and there is a button to its right. The button appears on the right. Click this button and select "View threat intelligence".

Threat Intelligence display information description.

Option Description
Basic Properties Display the network, country, Province, ASN and regional internet registry of the element.
IP WHOIS Display the detail of the IP address, including IP User and information.

White List Management

With the complexity of the network environment, the threat of the device will generate more and more warning. The generated threat events can be processed by changing the state of threat (refer to Admin Action), in order to make users more convenient to deal with the occurrence of future threats, the system provides a global threat white list function. The threat white list consists of a threat name, source address, and destination address, and when a subsequent threat event matches the threat white list, the system will record the count of hits and no longer report the threat.

Creating a White List

To create a threat white list, take the following steps:

  1. Click iCenter, and select Threat tab.
  2. Select the threat entries that need to be added to the white list, and click the threat name link in the list to open the Threat page.
  3. Clickto open the Admin Analysis page.
  4. Click Create White List button.
  5. Click OK.

Viewing the White List

To view the threat white list entries, take the following steps:

  1. Click iCenter.
  2. Click Whitelist Management tab.


For the Mitigation function introduction, see Mitigation.

Hot Threat Intelligence

Hot threat intelligence page displays the intelligence of hot threats on the Internet, including IPS vulnerability, virus and threats detected by the cloud sandbox. You can view the details of the hot threats, or carry out protection operations to prevent them.

Click iCenter> Hot Threat Intelligence to enter the Hot Threat Intelligence page. By default, the threats intelligence list shows the information of the latest year, including the release time, name, type, protection status and operation.

  • Select a time period from the Release Time drop-down list to filter the threat information of the specified time period. Click to add conditions to filter threat information as needed.
  • Click the button after "Hot Threat Intelligence Push”. If it’s enabled, Hillstone Cloud server will push the latest hot threat intelligence to system , and once system gets threat intelligence from the Hillstone Cloud server, it will be notified in the form of pop-up window. Otherwise, Hillstone cloud platform will no longer push the latest hot threat intelligence. Meanwhile, the previously received threat intelligence can only be viewed, and relevant protective operations are not allowed.
  • Select one threat intelligence item in the list and the corresponding threat details and protection logs will be displayed below the list.
    • Threat Details: You can view the detailed threat information, including the release time ,the name, signature ID, severity, details, solutions, affected systems and other information (the items may vary slightly for different types of threat).
    • Option


      Release TimeDisplays the release time of threat intelligence.
      Threat Intelligence NameDisplays the threat intelligence name.
      Signature IDDisplays the corresponded signature ID of the IPS signature database of the threat intelligence.
      SeverityDisplays the severity of threat intelligence.
      DetailsDisplays the details of threat intelligence.
      SolutionDisplays the solutions to the threat .
      Affected SystemsDisplays the name of operating system that the threat will affect.
      CVE IDDisplays the CVE ID and link of the threat. Click the link address, and a new page will be opened, where you can view the CVE details.
      Reference InformationDisplays links of the reference information about the threat. Click the link address and a new page will be opened, where you can view details of the reference information.
    • Protection Log: If system has been attacked by the threat described in the threat intelligence in the latest month, the protection logs will be displayed. If not, the protection log is empty.
  • Click the threat intelligence name in the list or the corresponded operation ("Protect Now" or "View Details") in the "Operation" column, and the < Hot Threat Intelligence > dialog box will pop up. You can view the information about the hot threat intelligence in the dialog.

    • Click <Threat Summary> to view the information about the threat.

    • For some threats in the "unprotected" status, you can see the corresponding protection solutions in the <Solution >tab. Click the links in sequence according to the steps in the solution, and configure the related functions. Only when you finish all the steps in one solutions (multiple solutions, at least one solution), the threat intelligence status will become "Protected".

    • o For some threats in the "unprotected" status, the < Solutions> tab will not be displayed and you need to take the protective measures on other websites or servers, but system provides some solutions in the <Threats Details> tab. After the threat is protected, click Confirm As Protected button and the status of threat intelligence will be changed to "Protected".

      For the threat in the "Protected" status, if it’s protected by system, you can click < Protection List >to view the protective measures, and click "View Details" to view details of the protective measures.
Because the operation steps in the < Solution >tab are correlated, please follow the steps of the solution in turn. For example, if the signature database has not been upgraded, the signature ID will not be shown, and subsequent protections may be unavailable. Or after the signature database is upgraded, the subsequent steps may change or some of the subsequent steps may be omitted.

Viewing Hot Threat Intelligence

System will obtain and download the latest threat intelligence information from the Hillstone cloud server at the set time every day or when you log in to system, and the information will be upgraded in the hot threat intelligence list.

When you enable the "Hot Threat Hot Threat Intelligence Push" function, once system gets a new intelligence, the notice of New Threat Intelligence will display in the upper right corner of the page. Hover the mouse over the notification, click "details", and the page will jump to the hot threat intelligence page. On the iCenter> Hot Threat Intelligence page, the new threat intelligence will be displayed in the form of pop-up windows for users to view.
