Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR) is a Cisco IOS technology that does deep packet inspection on network traffic to find the applications involved.You can say NBAR is a very powerful application-layer firewall that you may already have installed on your Cisco router.Most routers just look at traffic at Layer 3; with NBAR, routers can also look at Layers 4 through 7; As NBAR goes through the whole packet including header and some payload to classify an application and at the same time can work along with QoS (Quality of Service) by helping the network to provide differentiated services to each application.
NBAR used Protocol Description Language Module (PDLM) contains the rules by which NBAR technology recognizes an application during its packet inspection. NBAR analyzes the packets and compares them to a set of rules in the PDLM. If the rules mentioned in the PDLM are met, NBAR recognizes and classifies the application.you can download PDLM file.To know more about PDLM downloading and installation please refer Packet Description Language Module
Here are the some examples configuration on the Cisco devices.
Router(config)#class−map match−any http_filter
Router(config−cmap)#match protocol http url “*.ida*”
Router(config−cmap)#match protocol http url “*cmd.exe*”
Router(config−cmap)#match protocol http url “*root.exe*”
Router(config−cmap)#match protocol http url “*readme.eml*”
Once the router is configured to filter worms as mentioned above, the NBAR engine will do a deep packet analysis on traffic passing through the router interface and if the traffic matches above class then administrator can filter them using access list or they can do policy base routing for monitoring infected hosts.
This example shows how we can block P2P with the help of NBAR
class-map match-any OUTBOUND_TRAFFIC
match protocol fasttrack
match protocol gnutella
match protocol kazaa2
match protocol edonkey
match protocol napster
match protocol bittorrent
ip address 188.8.131.52 255.255.255.252
service-policy output OUTBOUND
All the packets of P2P matching in the Class Map will get dropped as soon as It reaches the outbound interface of the router.
Some verification command:
To check class map use "sh class-map <class-map name>"
To check policy status use "sh policy-map <policy-map name>"
To check various NBAR options

Introduction This document describes the optimizations placed in Cisco WAAS for Citrix. Cisco WAAS 4.5.1 introduced optimization for the Citrix HDX technology, including the ICA protocol, without any requirement for administrative actions to disable the native encryption and compression offered by Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp. Using supported access to the ICA protocol, Cisco WAAS supports optimization for the native ICA encryption:128-bit RC5 encryption, 56-bit RC5 encryption, 40-bit RC5 encryption, Basic encryption, SSL encryption, Administratively-uncompressed and unencrypted Citrix ICA. Citrix Optimization Up to 70% traffic-reduction is possible. You must configure the citrix server and client as follows: Procedure for disabling Compression on Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 & ICA Client 10.x Citrix is optimized by WAAS regardless of the configuration of the Citrix server and client. Additional performance improvements can be gained by disabling client compression and setting encryption to “RC5 (128bit) logon only”. Note that “Basic” encryption is still applied! To enable low encryption on the Citrix Presentation Server Console 4.5: - Open Citrix Management Console for Presentation Server (found in the Start menu) - In the left pane, select (serverfarm) > “Policies” - Then, right click "Policies" and select "Create a new policy" - Double-click the policy to edit - In the policy window left pane click “Security” > “Encryption” - Double-click the “SecureICA encryption” option to edit - In the policy window click "Enabled" and set encryption to "RC5 (128bit) logon only" - Then, click "Apply" and click "OK" To disable compression in the Citrix Program Neighborhood console: - Open Citrix Program Neighborhood console (found in the Start menu) - Locate the “Application Set Manager”, right-click, and select "application set settings" - On “Connection” choose a connection type either LAN or WAN - Then, in the properties dialog box, click the "Default Options" tab - Uncheck the box next to "Use data compression" - Set encryption level “128 Bit for Login Only” - Then, click "apply" and click "Ok" Note: It is not possible to disable data compression for both WAN & LAN! To disable compression in the ICA Client Template file: - Open and edit the “default.ica” file located in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\PNAgent\conf - If a line exists that begins with "Compress=", change the line to show "Compress=Off". - Otherwise, add a line that says "Compress=Off" - If a line exists that begins with "EncryptionLevelSession=", change the line to show "EncryptionLevelSession=EncRC5-0". - Otherwise, add a line that says "EncryptionLevelSession=EncRC5-0". - Restart any open connections. On the Client workstation amend the following 2 ini files: - Locate “appsrv.ini” located in C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\ - If it does not already exist add a line that says “Compress=Off” - Locate pn.ini located in C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\ - If it does not already exist add a line that says “Compress=Off” and “MaximumCompression=Off” Edit the following registry settings on the client workstation and the Citrix Server: - From the Start menu locate “Run” and type “regedit” - Using the directory listings in the left pane locate the following file: HKLM\Software\Citrix\ICA\Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Canonicalization\TCP/IP - Add a new String Value to the TCP/IP Folder by ‘right-clicking’ the right pane and select “New” > “String Value” - Enter the details as follows: Value: Compress Data: Compress - The type should be listed as REG_SZ - Close the window and restart the client and server.
