Chapter 6. Securing the Management Plane on Cisco IOS Devices

Accessing and configuring Cisco devices is a common occurrence for an administrator. Malicious router management traffic from an unauthorized source can pose a security threat. For example, an attacker could compromise router security by intercepting login credentials (such as the username and password).
