Hi. We're considering security of open-audit.
Main question is audit script results that are submitted online. Are they validate somehow ? Will someone be able to make mess by sending corrupt/malicious xml to submit url?
If so - are there known ways to protect from it? Can I modify blessed subnets to accept only from network only when it's is audited ?

The audit result must be valid XML.

They can certainly do that. Any changes to a device will be recorded in Open-AudIT though. So you'll see that a "bad" audit was submitted pretty quickly.

Blessed subnets are your answer.

I suppose we could look at something like that. Only accept data when a discovery run is occurring. I'll make a note to give that some thought but to be honest - if you have users in your organisation doing this you have more important issues to worry about!
