Puppet Discovery is packaged as a number of containers running on Docker and is installed using a single binary or executable file.

CAUTION: Prior to installing and running Puppet Discovery, it is recommended that you work with your network security administrators to ensure network management, and security sensors are appropriately configured. Using each SSH and WinRM credential you provide, Puppet Discovery attempts to authenticate with each discovered host until a successful authentication is achieved.  This process is repeated every 30 minutes.  Depending on the configuration of your network management and security sensors, Puppet Discovery's activities may trigger alerts or active response.
