Hello fellow pen-testers,

I am looking for tools that perform network policy checking. Specifically, tools that allow the user to define a 
policy and then test the network elements to see if they adhere to this policy. As one might guess, this can be 
accomplished either via config file checking (passive) or actual network testing (active, via SNMP etc). 
I am interested in both flavors, if they are available. These tools can be commercial or open-source/free/shareware. 
While it is a broad requirement, this hypothetical tool will primarily be looking at routers, firewalls, etc. 

Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts.

Hi Sony, 

Could you give some examples of specific routers and firewalls you're
looking to check, and what an example "network policy" issues you're
interested in?  It might help focus down some of the recommendations.
