Additional information

The following section is for those options that require additional explanation.

config entries

Configure file patterns used by DLP blocking.

file-type <string>

Note: This entry is only available when filter-type is set to type.

This file type filter examines the file contents to determine the type of file and look for a match to the file-type specified. Enter set file-type ? to display all available options.

The file name and file extension are ignored. Because of the way the file type filter works, renaming files to make them appear to be of a different type will not allow them past the FortiGate unit without detection.

Two of the available options are not file types:

  • unknown: To configure a rule affecting every file format the file type filter unit does not recognize. Unknown includes every file format not available in the file-type command.
  • ignored: To configure a rule affecting traffic the FortiGate unit typically does not scan. This includes primarily streaming audio and video.

filter-type {pattern | type}

Filter by file pattern name (set by default) or by file type:

  • pattern: Filter based on the file name. The pattern may include wildcards (*). For example, blocking *.scr will stop all files with a .scr file extension.
  • type: Filter based on examination of the file contents, regardless of the file name. If you block the file type Archive (zip), all zip archives are blocked even if named with a different file extension.
