Security Add-On: SSH Cipher, MAC, and Key-Exchange Algorithms

Dear JDisc users, As usual, we are constantly enhancing our data collection capabilities. This time, we have enhanced our security add-on to collect information about the SSH cipher, MAC, and key-exchange algorithms. When the security add-on is installed and licensed, the discovery configuration dialog offers a new setting for security-related data collections. When JDisc Discovery…

oVirt Support Added

Dear JDisc friends, We are continuously improving our scanning capabilities. Starting with build 5130, we will support Red Hat’s oVirt virtualization management software (starting with version 4). oVirt is similar to VMware’s VCenter. oVirt lets you define virtual datacenters, clusters and assign physical servers to the clusters. The support also includes Oracle’s Virtualization Management software…

JDisc Discovery integrates PAM Solution Passwordstate

Companies use more and more PAM (Privileged Access Management) tools to store, manage and rotate passwords for essential accounts (like domain admin accounts or root accounts for important servers). Especially rotating passwords make a manual configuration within JDisc Discovery impossible. Therefore, JDisc has integrated three password managers (Cyberark, Thychotic, Microsoft LAPS) into JDisc Discovery. Within…

LOG4J – Linux & Windows Script to identify log4j Vulnerability

Dear JDisc friends, find the German translation from our long term partner i-doit: https://www.i-doit.com/blog/log4j-linux-skript-von-jdisc/ I think everyone is busy figuring out if any applications are affected by the log4j security issue. While this may be easy for commercial applications, the vulnerability can be difficult to find for custom applications that are hosted in your data…

Verify Passwords

In order to scan devices properly, JDisc Discovery users need to configure access credentials. For security reasons, we do not display the passwords in clear text (neither in the UI nor in the logs). But how do you verify that you made no mistake when you entered the password? Misconfigured passwords lead to an access…
