I am curious what everyone thinks about the hardness of the security on the MikroTiks? Of course much of security depends on how much thought is put into the configuration, but there are also posible vulnerabilities and attacks on the Network Operating System.
I am going to Defcon 2006 and got an idea that I should try to configure a MikroTik router (probably a routerboard 532, I haven't decided yet) to take as a test to see how secure the NOS. I know there would be ways to totally take down the device, or overload it, but this would not necessary be a security risk as no breach into the device or the protected network would be made.
If anyone would like to help me I would like to configure a router as a test, to see how secure a MikroTik can be, but still be usable (remotely administered, and posibly use VPNs).
Let me know what you think.
