Nipper

For years I was using the CIS’ RAT (Router Assessment Tool) to evaluate the security of the configurations of various Cisco devices (firewalls, routers, switches). Then, several years ago, along came Nipper, the(n) free and open source tool doing similar assessment (but finding problems that RAT was not seeing). For several years I was using both tools on the same configurations, combining their results to get a fuller picture.

From the “No good thing stays free for long time” department: Couple of year ago the Nipper’s maker had pulled the Tenable’s Nessus bait-and-switch trick, making Nipper both closed source and commercial (non-free).
