13.1 > Network > openvas-manager (1.0.4)

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.

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

This package provides the OpenVAS manager. It will also install an init script
to start the manager at system startup; however, read carefully the README
provided in the package doc folder, as it outlines some important configuration

Remember to rebuild OpenVAS Manager cache at least one time, running either
"openvasmd --rebuild" or "/etc/rc.d/rc.openvasmd rebuild".
