ACL Parser Update

December 26th, 2011 9 comments

The ACL parser tool is intended to format ACL’s from may different devices into a common format for security professionals and network professionals to easily review the data. So during the initial development, I started with Cisco ACL’s and began moving into Fortinet. As I am nearing the end of the Fortinet, I realized I am doing the reformatting wrong. What I am doing wrong is the normalization process. So this latest release will be the last version using the current model. I am restructuring the script to format the data into a common format, that can be easily imported into a database such as “OSSAMS” or MS Excel and etc.

So what does this really mean, well the current code for the most part is not dead or I am declaring it dead, and I starting over. I will still use many of the regex and other test conditions in the current code, but the restructuring or normalizing of the data will be radically different. As I am just starting the new code today I can’t tell you what those changes will be, except for the changes will be easier to follow and I will create data models and documentation as I go.

So attached to this blog post is the final version of of the v0.1 train of code. I would like to make a special shot out to toni ‘at’ for giving me a patch to fix a few lines of code he found an issue with. I have incorporated these lines into this version.

Greetings All,

Here is a maintenance release of the Nessus parser. I would like to make a special shout out to Joe M (joebeast20 – AT – for finding a bug and contributing the code. The bug Joe found were missing plugin families in the check and reporting functions. I took the opportunity to update the plugin families so all plugin families are now in the tool.

Thanks again Joe.
