Switch security Audit

Unanswered Question

Years ago I used SDM to run a “wizard” that would perform a security audit on routers and switches and give you the steps to remediate them. I am looking for something similar now. I see I can use Cisco Configuration Professional for the routers but I can’t find a tool for a switch security audit. Any recommendations? Thanks.

If you want to know the vulnerbilty and holes in network devices use one of the open standard tools like Nipper is a much better tool.It Supports multiple

vendors such as Juniper and Checkpoint.

Nipper is now commercial. Are there any open source tools that are current to do the configuration audit?
