    security devices

    I was wondering if there was a physical device that you plug into a network router or whatever, and it does connection and security scans on each computer in the network? I could have sworn I saw something like this a long time ago. but I can't seem to find any info anywhere. I know it would only be practical in a big network. but I'm still interested.

    He wants a hardware solution though. GFI came to mind but it's software. I've never heard of anything hardware-wise that will do all he's wanting to do. If there is, I wanna know about it too!

    I'm on the trail of this elusive hardware security scanner and on the way I found this: Wristwatch will lock a PC
    I like Bond and thought others might too.

    set up linux as a router with snort running on it it may not scan every computer but it will be scanning the traffic going in and out on your network
