Agreed, time to live in the ACL is critical as well .. this is primary to be used to stop sweeps and penetration testing .. We have SNORT deployed now but the process is still manual on the back end and of course does not respond in the time required.

One suspects this sort of automated defense should only be used against attack styles that eliminate the likelihood of a forged source ip and that the acl needs to be pruned and compacted for size. Nearby bad ips can be collected into a larger mask but there is then risk of collateral damage (how many bad source ips in a /24 or whatever before you nuke the whole thing for a while? Does the length of a prefixes "rap sheet" change its treatment? Etc)
