Deep packet inspection (DPI) is a method of examining the full content of data packets as they traverse a monitored network checkpoint. DPI is part of DOCA SDK software solution for NVIDIA® BlueField®-2 DPU.
DPI provides a more robust mechanism for enforcing network packet filtering as it can be used to identify and block a range of complex threats hiding in network datastreams, such as:
- Malicious applications
- Malware data exfiltration attempts
- Content policy violations
- Application recognition
- Load balancing
