Scaning Cisco Router

Jump to solution

I need advice to scan a Cisco Router. I'm looking for vulnerabilities and good practices policy scan in order to detect username with no password or by default SNMP community names.

What kind of scan would you suggest for vulnerabilities router and for policy checks as I mentioned before?

Best Regards.

JR

Hi gooru4speed,

We don't have any policy checks for IOS.  You should submit a Product Enhancement Request:

Hi Karthik,

thanks for your reply. What you suggested is good for SNMP vulnerabilities but what I'm looking for is detection of wrong configurations that could impact in security policies that's why I think I have to do a "Compliance" scan but I don't know which one of McAfee templates apply.

Regards,

JR

I am not sure this tool will help out verify best practice configuration or dectecting wrong configuration. Also most of the compliance templates available are for OS only. not for IOS. you can check Algosec tool which may help you.
