Nipper, the opensource Security Audit Tool that can perform Securiy Audits of Network Device Configurations is now integrated into ZipTie, a Network Inventory and Configuration Management framework. Nipper in Ziptie will be called as Zipper.
Since, Ziptie supports all the network devices that can be audited by Nipper, all the functionality Nipper are available under Ziptie. An admin has to select the device and select Nipper to run the audit on the backedup configuration file.
Because, of the different licensing on both the products (Ziptie uses MPL while Nipper uses a GPL license). Zipper is not available out of the box and has to be installed using the plugin and is supported only on Windows at the moment and there is an intention to extend to other platforms on which ZipTie is supported.
