How to detect and kill unauthorized network activity
Posted on 2011-03-10
I am a school network admin. How can I detect when my students are using tools like PUTTY and Ultrasurf to bypass webfiltering and how can I detect and track DOS attacks from the student workstations? We do not allow non-distrooct devices to attach to the network. M7y best solution would be to detect and identify the activity, e-mail me about it, and allow me to either control it, or track it to a port on a switch. Additionally, if I could shape my network traffic to limit certain content, that would be a bonus...
My network uses Brocade big iron switches.
Thank you for your help.
