Ron,

I don't think I indicated that it is a Pen-test. Nevertheless, thanksfor the feedback. If there is a more appropriate 
forum where I should be posing this question, please consider sending me its details.

Thanks.

Regards,
SC.

Then do a configuration audit.  This, that you detail is not a pen-test 
but a configuration audit.

Thanks,

Todd,

My primary area of interest is to see if the network I am assessing meets certain best practices, for eg: all the 
CISCO routers have a certain QOS, or IPSec/GRE tunnels are supported, etc.
Hope this clarifies things a bit?

Regards,
SC.

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.
