Re: Locating switches in a multi-layer switching environment

hello,

you might use open source tool to behave as a switch with your pc.
You can then try to access other vlan (trunking) or be in the spanning tree (which is the root one?)

Subject: Locating switches in a multi-layer switching environment


Hi,

A network recon question: When pen testing an environment that deploys multi-layer switching, how can one reliably map the network and the relative location of all of the switches?

Add to this VLANS... How can you map VLANs that are on the network, especially if your access is but on one VLAN, and that VLAN is different than the switch management VLAN?

Thoughts, tools, tricks, white papers, etc. appreciated.

THANKS!
Jon Kibler
