SD-WAN Internet Census

The concept of software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN or SDWAN) is central to modern computer networking, particularly in enterprise networks. By definition, these systems form network perimeter and connect Internet, WAN, extranet, and branches, which makes them crucial from a cybersecurity point of view. The goal of this talk is to provide the results of passive and active fingerprinting for SD-WAN systems using a common threat intelligence approach. We explore Internet-based and cloud-based publicly available SD-WAN systems using the well-known «Shodan» and «Censys» search engines and custom developed automation tools and show that most of the SD-WAN systems have known vulnerabilities related to outdated software and insecure configuration.
