Credential scan of network devices

Jump to solution

Our management has just inquired whether running credential scans on network devices would be beneficial.  I said it might not be because there's probably not a whole lot of checks for those that require credentials.  Is there any documentation or a way to determine how many/which checks for Cisco devices require credentials?  Also, many of the checks state they're for a specific router/switch and wouldn't apply to us.  If there's any info such as the model of the device affected, that would be beneficial as well.

Hi t.

This KB tells you what OS Flavor / version  the MVM SSH Module can authenticate to.

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB53051

Your other question is a little more complex.  

If you go to scans / new scan.  Choose the Shell Advanced Scan Template

Then go to the Settings Tab,  Vuln Selection

Shell Vulnerabilities

Then look at  Vuln Selections for the following 2 categories, it should give you an idea about how many Cisco checks we have that require credentials (Both the following categories require credentials):

Cisco IOS Patches and Hotfixes

&

SSH Miscellaneous

I hope that helps!
