The Inventory section includes Netris-managed devices and allows you to add, edit, or delete network switches and SoftGates. The initial setup of the Netris managed fabric consists of a three-step process:
Create Inventory Profiles
You can also add new devices in the Topology view.
Inventory profiles enable security hardening for inventory devices. By default, all traffic flow destined for a switch or SoftGate is allowed. However, once an inventory profile is attached to a device, it denies all traffic destined for the device except for Netris-defined and user-defined custom flows. Generated rules include:
SSH from user-defined subnets
NTP from user-defined NTP services
DNS from user-defined DNS servers
Custom user-defined rules
The Netris Controller includes a preconfigured Inventory profile named “default-inventory-profile.” You can either edit this profile or create your own.
Each SoftGate node needs to be added to the Netris Controller inventory. Network → Inventory → +Add
Each Switch node needs to be added to the Netris Controller inventory. Network → Inventory → +Add
