Is there any way for us to be notified of the addition of say a new Router to our network?
For our annual security review we are conducting an intrusion test and it was asked if this could be possible - the testers bring in their router and use our existing EIGRP network to see what they could find.
I will look into the polling MIB...the router has not been plugged in. There is a chance that they may not use any(pen testers will not disclose) but we want to be ready just in case such a device is added.
You could poll a MIB for routing table and one for CDP neighbors. Perhaps configure syslog or trap for routing changes. Alert on any/ all of these.
