Nessus Compliance Checks for the Brocade Fabric OS

A new compliance plugin and audit file for auditing Brocade Fabric OS-based devices are now available for Tenable customers.

Brocade Fabric OS (FOS) runs on the Brocade family of Fibre Channel and FICON backbones and switches.

With this new plugin and audit file, Tenable customers can now audit their Brocade Fabric OS configurations for industry best practices, including checks for:

  • Password policy
  • Enabled services
  • Lockout policy
  • Insecure service configuration
  • Authentication
  • Logging and audit settings

To perform a Brocade Fabric OS audit, you will need:

  • Root/admin credentials for SSH access, or a configuration file for offline configuration audits (as detailed in this blog post).
  • Plugin #71842, which is now in the plugin feed in the Policy Compliance family
  • The Brocade Fabric OS audit policy, now available from the Tenable Support Portal (see this Discussions Forum post for more info)

Sample configuration audit results are shown below in the familiar Nessus compliance format. Detailed findings include solutions to any failed configuration settings.
