Switch: Vulnerability Assessement

techne2techne2 Posts: 3Registered Users ■□□□□□□□□□
Hi all,
I would like to performe a vulnerability assessment on a "generic switch". So I need to find a list of vulnerability that could be tested on a switch.
The only two item I know about the switch are those:
- the switch implements VLAN
- the switch has an EAP authentication protocol.

Any suggestion ?
Thanks in advance.

    Run an OpenVAS scan on it.

    There are some model specific vulns too. Take this issue with vstack for example: https://tools.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityResponse/cisco-sr-20170214-smi

    Is this your homework by any chance?

    Cisco Configuration Professional can scan it and provide you with a list of things to address.

    A lot of it is covered in the CCNA security, if you want, I can list some.
