13.37 > Network > openvas-scanner (3.1.1)

OpenVAS stands for Open Vulnerability Assessment System and is a network
security scanner with associated tools like a graphical user front-end. The
core component is a server with a set of network vulnerability tests (NVTs)
to detect security problems in remote systems and applications.

OpenVAS products are Free Software under GNU GPL and a fork of Nessus.

This package provides the OpenVAS scanner. To build a complete OpenVAS scanner
installation, however, you have to compile and install the packages in the
following sequence:
1. openvas-libraries
2. openvas-scanner
3. openvas-client

The openvas-client GUI is needed to interact with the OpenVAS scanner, however
there are some new optional modules:
1. openvas-manager for storing and organizing scans on a central server in a
SQL database
2. openvas-administrator for User-, Feed- and Settings-Management
3. greenbone-security-assistant for a web-based Vulnerability Management

Speaking of changes: the daemon changed its name from openvasd to openavassd
(notice the extra "s"), so the rc script is /etc/rc.d/rc.openavssd now.

As a last note, keep in mind that this is a major version transition: the
older openvas-libnasl and openvas-plugins packages no longer exists,
openvas-server has been replaced by the openvas-scanner package and there are
the new optional modules. A straight upgradepkg (with removal of deprecated
packages) *SHOULD* work but also consider to backup your old configuration and
starting over from a fresh OpenVAS installation.

This package will also ship the /etc/rc.d/rc.openvas.conf file, which is used
to store your entire OpenVAS configuration in a single file.
