JUNOS Security Benchmark

  • Hi Guys,

    I am working with the Center for Internet Security (CIS) (http://www.cisecurity.org/) to produce a new technical, security benchmark for JUNOS routers (may later expand to EX, etc).

    CIS already provides benchmarks for many other systems from Cisco IOS and Checkpoint Firewalls through to Sun Solaris and Microsoft SQL Server.  The benchmarks are created through a consensus process with volunteers with subject matter experience debating the contents of the recommendations through a private mailing list and the CIS forums.  The results are provided for free to the internet community along with software to compare your configuration to the benchmark and ‘score’ the security of a given config as well as highlight areas which differ and how and why to correct them.  More can be found about the benchmarks and process here (http://www.cisecurity.org/bench.html#bench_bench).

    As I mentioned, I am working with CIS to lead a JUNOS benchmark process and we are looking for volunteers to join in the consensus process, something which will hopefully be helpful to the JUNOS community, a great opportunity to network with people in the same field and of course, look awesome on your CV  >80)

    If you are interested in finding out more, please drop me a  message through this forum or visit the CIS website.
