RE: Detecting Rogues from the wired side

Why not just write a script that logs onto the switches, they do have a good inventory of what they do control right? 
Once it logs on get an arp table dump and then compare all the attached machine mac addresses with known ap assigned 
mac addreses.

It seems like this could be a good way to get this info, be somewhat accurate and have not too much impact on the 
network itself.

Now it and most other methods won't, capture any rogue aps that are running on linux/bsd/etc that people have built but 
it is pretty good starting point.

Good luck

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
