IP Reputation Format

Description of IP Reputation file formats. For the configuration see IPReputationConfig and IPReputationRules for the rule format.

Categories file

The categories file provides a mapping between a category number, short name and long description. It's a simple CSV file:

<id>,<short name>,<discription>

Example:

1,BadHosts,Known bad hosts
2,Google,Known google host

The maximum value for the category id is hard coded at 60 currently.

Reputation file

The reputation file lists a reputation score for hosts in the categories. It's a simple CSV file:

<ip>,<cat>,<score>

The IP is an IPv4 address in the quad-dotted notation. The category is the number as defined in the categories file and the value is a number between 1 and 127. 0 means no data.

Example:

1.2.3.4,1,101
1.1.1.1,6,88

If an IP address has a score in multiple categories it should be listed in the file multiple times.

Example:

1.1.1.1,1,10
1.1.1.1,2,10

This lists 1.1.1.1 in categories 1 and 2, each with a score of 10.
