Normal IPS license required IPS contract like SUSA. Please advise if there are some Sourcefire specific contract type names for SF IPS, URL Filtering, and also a Malware and application control license. Also, if there is a certain contract type which require special handling, please describe.
Marvin, thank you. I am looking for "service contract type". What I mean by "service contract type" can be found in this spread sheet, column D. Sourcefire related contract types are not listed on this master file yet.
That link doesn't resolve for me. I think it's internal Cisco only.
Technically the FirePOWER modules are activated with license files applied on and distributed from their managing FireSIGHT Management Center. You get them using a Product Activation Key (PAK) and the license ID from the managing FMC.
That is different from the older style of entitlement that the IPS used which required attaching the IPS service to the base ASA (in the Cisco Service Contract Center or CSCC) and then having an active service contract for that ASA with IPS service attachment.
