port security report

Steven Carnahan
Last Modified: 2016-10-12
We have port security set on our Cisco switches. The problem is that we have all ports active with dummy MAC's assigned initially. This causes an alert when a rouge device is plugged in which is good.  What isn't good is if we move a device from one port to another the old port doesn't get the dummy MAC assigned leaving it vulnerable to a rouge device.  We would like to have something that can look at ports to:

1. check for ports with port-security not turned on
2. check for ports with port-security turned on but no, or not enough since we also have phones on some of the same ports, MAC's assigned to it.  
3. send an email daily with the results of 1&2

Thank you
