gvmd  8.0.1
About: OpenVAS Greenbone Vulnerability Manager is a layer between OpenVAS-Scanner and various client applications such as OpenVAS-Client or Greenbone Security Assistant. Among other features, it adds server-side storage of scan results and it makes it unnecessary for scan clients to keep connection until a scan finishes.

gvmd Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies
  4. gvmd-8.0.1.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Greenbone Vulnerability Manager

GitHub releases Code Documentation Coverage CircleCI

The Greenbone Vulnerability Manager is the central management service between security scanners and the user clients.

It manages the storage of any vulnerability management configurations and of the scan results. Access to data, control commands and workflows is offered via the XML-based Greenbone Management Protocol (GMP). The primary scanner OpenVAS Scanner is controlled directly via protocol OTP while any other remote scanner is coupled with the Open Scanner Protocol (OSP).

Installation and Usage

This module can be configured, built and installed with following commands:

cmake .
make install

For detailed installation requirements and instructions, please see the file INSTALL.md. The file also contains instructions for setting up gvmd and for connecting gvmd to vulnerability scanners and to the GSA web interface.

In case everything was installed using the defaults, then starting the manager daemon can be done with this simple command:

gvmd

To see all available command line options of gvmd enter this command:

gvmd --help

If you are not familiar or comfortable building from source code, we recommend that you use the Greenbone Community Edition, a prepared virtual machine with a readily available setup. Information regarding the virtual machine is available at https://www.greenbone.net/en/community-edition/.

Support
