Testing The CISCO PIX

One of my clients is asking me to test with different tools/Apps in the market if the Cisco Pix

520 installed in the company is really securing its

servers and nodes inside the network .

Any ideas of tools or hackers apps and where i can find them ?

Re: Testing The CISCO PIX

Usually when I install a PIX onto the edge of an existing business, I like to perform a basic vulnerability assessment of the existing infastructure. This of course involves port scanning to see what services are listening currently, then run the same scans to demonstrate how the PIX has sheilded these services and ports from the outside. I usually use little hacker sharware utilities like Hoppa Portscanner, or Ultrascan. These scanners can be downloaded at various hacker sites. Run a scan from the outside on various devices, then capture a screenshot of the results(I like Snagit). You can then insert this screenshot into Word or some other program with a before and after view. Management loves these and it helps to validate your efforts and expense.
