The techniques presented herein provide efficient, scalable, and comprehensive industrial asset inventory and vulnerability detection in operation technology (OT) networks. The techniques achieve this by adaptively and dynamically chaining traffic-monitoring methods through an OT network. Additionally, the techniques automatically and efficiently deploy sensors in an OT network to support the traffic-monitoring chaining and efficiently utilize resources in the OT network. These techniques may resolve vulnerability detection issues and inventory tracking and classification issues that are commonly encountered in OT networks, which that often utilize network elements without traffic sensing features.
