Automated test on router


Recommended Posts


I want to test the security of my home router. I’m currently double NAT’d(ISP router first)  and want to test my router before exposing to the internet. Does anyone know of any processes/tools that I can use to make sure everything is ok?

I've used nmap and nothing appears open that shouldn’t be.

Any advice/guidance would be much appreciated.

**This is my home network and I have full access to infrastructure and security**

First question, are you getting an non-RFC 1918 address on your router? If not, then you can't scan it from outside as you'd be scanning whatever infrastructure comes in front of it.

If you are, then get something like OpenVAS or sign up for a demo Nessus.io account and use that.
