"must haves" for hardening cisco switches?

Post by donglee » Wed Mar 19, 2014 4:10 am

Hello folks

I'm currently reviewing Cisco's best practices for device hardening and it's a long read!
Whilst I work through it I'd like to ask your "must haves" for hardening your switches. I have a few obvious ones in mind such as disabling Telnet access but really I'd like to hear what everyone else does to harden their devices.

The switch I'm really interested in hardening is the WS-C2960S-24TS-L and so I'd be especially interested in hearing from anyone who uses these ones.

Thank you in advance

Network Engineer
