How to create a dashboard that runs searches against a CSV of devices in our subnet to display new/unauthorized devices?

Path Finder

Hi,

Sorry I am sure this is a noob question, but I am struggling after searching to find the best way to obtain the results I require.

I am in the process of trying to create a dashboard to meet the SANS 20 requirements and have been using http://www.splunk.com/web_assets/pdfs/secure/Splunk-and-the-SANS-Top-20-Critical-Security-Controls.p... to find the best way to meet each control.

Currently I am working on unauthorized devices and have setup asset discovery to scan our subnet which is fine. What I would like to do it to create a CSV or something else that the NMAP results are compared to and then display any devices that are not on the list. This will allow us to have easy visibility of new devices.

At the moment there is no asset DB/system and the CSV would be a manual process until an asset DB is purchased.

Any assistance or suggestions on the best way to either achieve the above or a better solution would be welcome.

thanks

Your CSV will serve as the asset DB until a formal DB is acquired. Build the CSV using your asset discovery mechanism. Write all discovered assets to the CSV then manually remove those that do not belong. Now you have something to which to compare for your reports. Of course, someone will have to update the CSV manually as assets are purchased and disposed.
