One of the trickiest parts of network discovery is balancing thoroughness with speed. We strive to provide a fast, low-impact scan by default, but also try to include as many services and protocols as possible. Today we released version 0.7.5 of the Rumble Agent and Rumble Scanner. This version increases the default port coverage from 100 TCP ports to more than 400, while also supporting discovery and fingerprinting of additional TCP services by leveraging UDP discovery protocols.

Rumble will now automatically scan and fingerprint TCP services identified through multicast ZeroConf (mDNS) SRV records, advertised via UPnP SSDP locations, returned in Microsoft SQL Server discovery responses, enumerated via SunRPC portmapper responses, included in WSD probe replies, and identified via HTTP redirects. Combined, these discovery methods substantially improve TCP service coverage without a major impact on scan durations.

TCP Discovery via UDP Services

Multicast ZeroConf discovery is now used to identify Apple macOS version and hardware model information, along with a ton of useful information from ZeroConf-enabled network devices. In addition to increased port coverage and UDP-based TCP discovery, the default scan parameters have been slightly tweaked to improve performance while also increasing scan reliability of low-power devices. The default Scan Rate has been increased from 500 to 1000 while the Max Host Rate dropped from 50 to 40. As part of the UPnP SSDP changes, the UPnP device description (XML) is also automatically retrieved and recorded.

Update: Version 0.7.6 of the Rumble Agent and Rumble Scanner will also track how the TCP service was discovered. An example of a TCP service found via SSDP is shown below.

TCP Discovery Source Tracking

Going forward we plan to leverage cross-service discovery whenever possible while also aiming to keep scan speeds consistent with their current levels. Candidates for future cross-service discovery include the Netstat daemon, SNMP v1/v2c, and the Microsoft RPC Endpoint Mapper. Existing recurring scans will continue to use the old port settings, but as of Beta 4, can be updated via the Modify action on the Tasks screen.

To update an existing scan to match the new defaults, set the Scan Rate to 1000, the Max Host Rate to 40, and the TCP Ports to following list:

Overview Version 1.7.0 of Rumble Network Discovery is live with big updates to reporting. The Analysis Reports introduced in version 1.6.2 are now joined by a new Subnet Grid Report, linked off the main Subnets Report under the Explore menu. The Query Library has been updated with small tweaks and new built-in query for finding expired TLS certificates, supported by improvements to the scan engine. The Rumble backend has been upgraded to support our larger customers as well as all of our new Starter Edition users.
Overview Version 1.6.0 of Rumble Network Discovery is live with support for configurable scan grace periods, data retention policies, additional protocol support, enhanced fingerprint coverage, new search keywords, and much more. Scan Grace Periods Starting with the 1.3.2 release, Rumble would automatically cancel a scheduled or recurring scan if the intended agent was not available after four hours. This fixed grace period prevented scans from stacking up in the case of a slow scan or offline agent, but it didn’t work for all use cases, and this is now configurable at the scan level.
Scanning & Searching Version 1.5.0 of Rumble Network Discovery is live with updates in two major areas; wider scanning, through improved protocol support, scan engine enhancements, and more comprehensive decoders; and deeper searching, with the addition of a dozen new search filters and other enhancements to the web console. Wider Scanning Whether you use the Rumble Agent or the Rumble Scanner, the scan engine improvements in v1.5.0 make discovery more reliable, predictable, and comprehensive.
