Enterprise architecture is an approach which aim to provide decision support based on organization-wide models. The creation of these models is however cumbersome as multiple aspects of an organization need to be considered. The Enterprise Architecture approach would be significantly less demanding if data used to create the models could be collected automatically. This paper illustrates how a vulnerability scanner can be utilized for data collection in order to automatically create enterprise architecture models. The authors show how this approach can be realized by extending an earlier presented Enterprise Architecture tool.
