The lab gives an overview of the available APIs that can be used to manage IBM Security Network Protection and send alerts to it.
Application programming interfaces (APIs) can greatly increase the functionality of the IBM Network Protection (XGS) appliance. In this course, you learn about the structure of the XGS appliance and how to use APIs that send management commands and APIs that send alerts to communicate with the appliance. This unit describes general web services commands or methods and how to create them using the cURL utility. You also learn to use the web services API to manage the appliance. Finally, you learn about using APIs to send alerts to third-party advanced threat protection (ATP) agents.
XGS: Senior Administrator
This roadmap helps you leverage additional features in your XGS appliance, which increases the scope of protection you can manage as an IBM Network Protection Administrator. You learn how to apply protection policies to encrypted traffic, use SNORT signatures as an extra inspection engine to PAM, create policies based on user identity, prevent the unauthorized transmission of sensitive information, and navigate the command line interface for more granular control of the appliance and initial troubleshooting. It is important that an XGS Administrator have a working knowledge of SiteProtector.
