Rogue System Detection Sensor (RSD Sensor) on Linux or Raspberry

I’m wondering why there is no RSD Sensor for Linux or Raspberry pi systems. Only Windows systems are supported as sensors. I have customers with one headquarter and 50 branches (with only a few systems). So I need a windows server in each branch?

How about a small Linux system with RSD sensor embedded?

Re: Rogue System Detection Sensor (RSD Sensor) on Linux or Raspberry

Hi moerike8,

We say that an RSD sensor is 'best' placed on a server as it (the server) is on 24hrs a day, as such it gives full 'sensor' coverage.

You can deploy an RSD to a Client device if you wish, many customers do because like your example here there is no server setup to utilise!

Here is some information around RSD;

  • Rogue System Detection 5.0.5 Product Guide
    Product Documentation ID:   PD26994

  • Found WinPCAP driver. Aborting installation (Rogue System Detection 5.0.x sensor fails to install) Technical Articles ID:   KB82306

The last two are examples of operation and with respect to the last one, so long as the MA is actually working as it should is the top call generator when a RSD sensor fails to install at all!

As to the 'linux' platform portion of your post, I can only suggest a 'Product Idea' previously called 'Product Enhancement (PER)' is created to have a Linux version of RSD.
As to the 'Rassberry Pi', its not an industry standard, nor is it widely used in industry which means demand for such a thing is low if there is any demand at all.
However, IMHO such a small device working in a network with such a low level of power consumption, low footprint, small size  etc does strike me as a very good idea to have such an offering to create and so use in all estates to be honest with you!

Personally I really like that as an idea!
