Netscreen bought OneSecure before Juniper bought Netscreen. OneSecure
was the original maker of the IPS solution and is a decent solution to
date. It is either IPS inline or IDS out.  As for any opensource code,
google @onesecure.com. The trail is somewhat interesting with posts to
the snort users list from people at onesecure. Interesting!

The IPS systems are not ASIC based like their firewalls. If you take a
closer look at the systems, they look allot like Dell PowerEdges!

One of netscreen's goals was to move an IPS lite into the firewalls,
which they did. Hence the move towards central processing even in
their appliance firewalls.
