This document describes how to tune the inspection profiles on the HP TippingPoint NG-IPS  solution using the Qualys Vulnerability Scanner..   The tuning of the security policy can be a difficult task, which heavily depends on the skills and knowledge of the security admin. With a weekly release of the TippingPoint filter set (Digital Vaccine), there are typically 15 to 50 new filters. Even the most critical DV filters reflecting current threat level are enabled by default, security admins need to consider which other filters to enable either in permit, block, quarantine or other action mode. Using a precise and easy to use vulnerability scan like Qualys can make such administrative decisions easier, faster and more accurate.
