Download and install OpenVAS in Kali
- [Voiceover] An important first step…in carrying out a test of a system…is to check whether it has any known vulnerabilities.…This is done using a vulnerability scanner.…The traditional vulnerability scanner used…with Kali, is the Open Source…Vulnerability Assessment System, OpenVAS.…OpenVAS doesn't come preinstalled…with the latest Kali release,…so it has to be manually added.…We can do this simply by opening…a terminal window and entering…apt-get update…&& apt-get…install -y openvas.…
This makes sure Kali is up to date and does the install.…This takes a few minutes.…Okay, that's installed.…Now we need to do the initial set-up.…The set-up phase carries out the initial downloads…of the network vulnerability tests, or NVT,…database from the internet.…And this will take a while.…Okay, that's finished and we now have…our scanning database set up.…And the admin user, with an impressively long password.…
Let's simplify this before we go,…by entering openvasmd…- -user…=admin…- -new…- password…=admin.…To keep OpenVAS up to date as we use it in the future,…
This course will give prospective ethical hackers a short overview of the tools in Kali Linux. Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore shows how to set up a virtual environment for testing, configure Kali Linux, and install toolsets for information gathering, vulnerability assessment, password and hash cracking, and target exploitation.
Because businesses are connected, they are also exposed. Vulnerability testing helps organizations limit that exposure. This course will help you explore the careers, techniques, and tools behind ethical hacking—one of the most competitive and sought-after IT security skills.
