How can I verify control plane protection for compliance with STIG NET0966?

The best way would be to run a compliance tool against it. If there are concerns based on the results give us a call.
We have a C4 team here doing STIG checks. They are used to Cisco and having trouble with the Extreme/Enterasys devices. They are concerned about STIG NET0966: Control plane protection is not enabled. There's no way to confirm this?

Without know what the test is I cannot answer. We harden the systems they best we can and when issues arise we get them address ASAP.

Hi Susan,

control plane protection on Cisco differs from similar functionality on the S-Series, especially regarding configuration (it differs between Cisco devices as well, e.g. CoPP vs. CPPr). Thus it does not help to compare an S-Series configuration file to a Cisco template.

You might want to (have the C4 team) look into the Host DoS and Host ACL features of the S-Series as a starting point.
