Beginning in October 2009, students will be required to demonstrate mastery of the Cisco IOS Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) for the CCIE R/S track.

This is obviously a very short list. Remember, we recommend use of the Cisco Intrusion Prevention System Device Manager (IDM) for management and configuration of the device during the lab exam. While this graphical user interface (GUI) will be used for most tasks, there are still some useful and quick command line verification tasks for you here.
