OpenVAS Scanner Connector

Connect ArcherySec with your OpenVAS Scanner instance by configering OpenVAS Scanner API into ArcherySec settings.

Before you begin

Note that, at this time, Archery generates a TCP connection towards the OpenVAS Manager (not the GSA): therefore, you need to update your OpenVAS Manager configuration to bind this port. Its default port (9390/tcp), but you can update this in your settings.

The prerequisites are:

  1. OpenVAS Scanner is running and accessible from ArcherySec server
  2. OpenVAS Scanner API enabled and reachable through archerysec

Setup Steps

  1. Login into ArcherySec
  2. Go to Settings > Add Connector > OpenVAS
  3. Provide OpenVAS API Host
  4. Provide OpenVAS API Port
  5. Provide OpenVAS API User
  6. Provide OpenVAS API Pass


Check the connection status


!!! Congratulations you have successfully configured OpenVAS Scanner Connector
