Prepare to Use the Quick Setup Wizard


Before you start, you must have:

WSM and Fireware XTM OS installed on the management computer Network information

It is a good idea to have the feature key for your device before you start the wizard. You can copy it from the LiveSecurity web site during registration.

WatchGuard Training

15

Launch the Quick Setup Wizard


For the Quick Setup Wizard to operate correctly, you must:

Prepare the device to be discovered by the Quick Setup Wizard (QSW). The QSW shows you how to prepare each device. Assign a static IP address to your management computer from the same subnet that you plan to assign to the Trusted interface of the XTM device. Alternatively, you can get a DHCP address from the device when it is in Safe Mode. Connect the Ethernet interface of your computer to interface #1 of the device. Launch WatchGuard System Manager (WSM) and launch the Quick Setup Wizard from the WSM Tools menu.

The name you assign to the device in the wizard is used to:

Identify the device in WSM Identify the device in log files Identify the device in Log Manager and Report Manager

WatchGuard Training

19

Quick Setup Wizard Device Feedback


If your device uses Fireware XTM OS v11.7.3 or higher, the Quick Setup Wizard enables the device to send feedback to WatchGuard by default.

When device feedback is enabled, the XTM device sends this information to WatchGuard once each day:
XTM device serial number Fireware XTM OS version and build number XTM device model XTM device uptime since the last restart

To disable device feedback:

Clear the Send device feedback to WatchGuard check box. You can also configure this setting in Global Settings.

WatchGuard Training

20

Quick Setup Wizard Configure the External Interface


The IP address you give to the external interface can be:

A static IP address An IP address assigned with DHCP An IP address assigned with PPPoE

You must also add an IP address for the device default gateway. This is the IP address of your gateway router.

WatchGuard Training

21

Quick Setup Wizard Configure Interfaces


Configure the Trusted and Optional interfaces. Select one of these configuration options:

Mixed Routing Mode (Use these IP addresses)


Each interface is configured with an IP address on a different subnet.

Drop-in Mode (Use the same IP address as the external interface)


All XTM device interfaces have the same IP address. Use drop-in mode when devices from the same publicly addressed network are located on more than one device interface.

WatchGuard Training

22

Understand Routed Configurations


In mixed routing mode (routed configuration):

Configure each interface with an IP address on a different subnet. Assign secondary networks on any interface.

WatchGuard Training

23

Understand Drop-in Configurations


In drop-in mode:

Assign the same primary IP address to all interfaces on your device. Assign secondary networks on any interface. You can keep the same IP addresses and default gateways for devices on your trusted and optional networks, and add a secondary network address to the XTM device interface so the device can correctly send traffic to those devices.

WatchGuard Training

24

Quick Setup Wizard Add a Feature Key


When you purchase additional options for your device, you must get a new feature key to activate the new options. You can add feature keys in the Quick Setup Wizard or later in Policy Manager.

WatchGuard Training

96

What is a Policy?
A rule to limit access through the XTM device Can be configured to allow traffic or deny traffic Can be enabled or disabled Applies to specific port(s) and protocols Applies to traffic that matches From and To fields:

From Specific source hosts, subnets or users/groups To Specific destination hosts, subnets, or users/groups

WatchGuard Training

97

Packet Filters, Proxies, and ALGs


Two types of policies:

Packet Filter Examines the IP header of each packet, and operates at the network and transport protocol packet layers. Proxy & ALG (Application Layer Gateway)
Proxy Examines the IP header and the content of a packet at the application layer. If the content does not match the criteria you set in your proxy policies, you can set the proxy to deny the packet. Some proxy policies allow you to remove the disallowed content. ALG Completes the same functions as a proxy, but also provides transparent connection management. Proxy policies and ALGs examine the commands used in the connection to make sure they are in the correct syntax and order, and use deep packet inspection to make sure that connections are secure.

WatchGuard Training

98

Packet Filters, Proxies, and ALGs


Proxies & ALGs:

Remove all the network data Examine the contents Add the network data again Send the packet to its destination

WatchGuard Training

103

When do I use a custom policy?


A custom policy can be either a packet filter or proxy policy. Use a custom policy if:

None of the pre-defined policies include the specific combination of ports that you want. You need to create a policy that uses a protocol other than TCP or UDP.

WatchGuard Training

104

Logging and Notification for Policies


When you enable logging in a policy, you can also select whether the XTM device sends a notification message or triggers an SNMP trap. Notification options include:

Send email to a specified address A pop-up notification on the Log Server

WatchGuard Training

105

Set Logging Rules for a Policy


The XTM device generates log messages for many different types of activities You enable logging for policies to specify when log messages are generated and sent to the Log Server

WatchGuard Training

106

What is Precedence?
Precedence is used to decide which policy controls a connection when more than one policy could control that connection In Details view, the higher the policy appears in the list, the greater its precedence. If two policies could apply to a connection, the policy higher in the list controls that connection

WatchGuard Training

107

What is Precedence?
Policies can be moved up or down in Manual Order mode to set precedence, or restored to the order assigned by Policy Manager with Auto-Order Mode.

WatchGuard Training

208

What is Reputation Enabled Defense (RED)?


Reputation-based HTTP anti-virus and anti-spyware prevention subscription, available for WatchGuard XTM device models only RED operates with the HTTP-proxy RED uses a cloud-based reputation server that assigns a reputation score between 1 and 100 to every URL

The reputation score for a URL is based on AV scanning feedback and other URL reputation data collected from sources around the world.

When a user browses to a web site, RED looks up the score for the URL

For URLs with a good reputation score, local scanning is bypassed For URLs with a bad reputation score, the HTTP-proxy denies access without local scanning by Gateway AV For URLs with an inconclusive reputation score, local Gateway AV scanning is performed as configured

Eliminates the need to locally scan the content of web sites that have a known good or bad reputation and improves XTM device performance
WatchGuard Training 209

WatchGuard Training

RED Reputation Scores


Reputation Scores:

High scores indicate a bad reputation Low scores indicate a good reputation If RED has no knowledge of a URL, it assigns a score of 50 The reputation score assigned to a URL increases based on:
Negative scan results for that URL Negative scan results for a referring link Negative information from other sources of malware data

The reputation score assigned to a URL decreases based on:


Multiple clean scans Recent clean scans

RED continually updates the reputation scores for URLs based on:

Scan results from devices around the world by two leading anti-malware engines: Kaspersky and AVG Data from other leading sources of malware intelligence for the web

WatchGuard Training

210

RED Reputation Thresholds and Actions


The action performed by the HTTP-proxy depends on:

The reputation score of a requested URL The locally configured reputation thresholds If score is higher than the Bad reputation threshold, Deny access If score is lower than the Good reputation threshold, Bypass local scanning Otherwise, perform local Gateway AV scanning as configured

RED Actions:
