Attributes are aliases used to help with identification of network infrastructure and users. Assigning an attribute category to a MAC address, user, IP, device or interface allows different user groups easily tag and identify your network infrastructure. For example, a network engineer may prefer to alias a device with a name or category appropriate to their view of your network. The security team may prefer a different categorisation.

The categories are:

  • MAC Categories
  • IP Categories
  • User Categories
  • Device Categories
  • Interface Categories

The aim is to facilitate rapid identification of network infrastructure and user groups.
