Appendix A: Network Appliance Security Testing Template

This is the template we use to bring system and structure into the chaotic world of independent network appliance security auditing. It can be used for both standalone router, switch, firewall, wireless access point, or any other specific network appliance security beta-testing. Alternatively, this template can be incorporated into a more general network penetration test scheme to ensure that all deployed networked devices are thoroughly checked on all OSI model layers .
