RE: Detecting Rogues from the wired side

A slight modification to option #1 would be to pull all the MAC
addresses from all the switches and routers on the network.  Then they
could be researched...basically, that's what Airwave has already done
with their product...at least that part of it.  There has been some
effort in the wifi/wardriving groups to create that documentation.  You
might try looking at some of those web sites.  Some of these links may
be helpful.  Going to google and looking for "mac address database
wireless rouge ap detection" will give you more ideas.

Subject: Detecting Rogues from the wired side

Hi list, 


The client has got a huge network to be audited for Rogue Access
Points...the timeframes are tight so we're going to work on the wired
side, only, and I've been wondering how to do this more effectively.I
have identified two options:


- Run a 'customized' version of nmap to include only the Wireless AP
signatures in the fingerprint database and investigate on any devices
that are different makes & models from the ones 'officially endorsed'

- Acquire a copy of RAPIDS from Airwave.com... which is supposed to do
just that, and has a large databaase of Wireless Vendor Fingerprints.
Has anyone used it or do you have any alternative products to suggest? 


I'm looking forward to your thoughts, folks.


Many thanks, once again

Stelios
