Scanning Network Devices

Anyone have any advice on scanning network devices(switches, routers, and F5 Load balancer); can they be authenticated? Is it the same as opening ports on the server with 135 445 139 or for linux ssh 22?

Just ensure you have credentials with administrative access on network devices, add them to insightVM shared scan credentials and you’ll get vulnerabilities for network devices

Yes, we were able to scan Cisco, F5 and Linux appliances using SSH service on IVM with root creds.
