Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video Scanning targets with OpenVAS, part of Penetration Testing Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Identifying vulnerabilities…is a key part of a pen tester's role.…And one way to do this is with Open Vas.…Open Vas does not come as part of the bundled Kali release…so we need to add it.…Now that Open Vas has completed its installation,…we can run its set up script.…Note that we only need to do this once.…We'll just need to run the Open Vas start script…in the future.…
Okay this will take a while…so I'll return once it's complete.…We're now set up and we can start scanning.…To access the Open Vas system,…we need to connect to the web portal…on port 9392 using Firefox.…Before we do that we should take note of the admin password.…I've logged in to the web portal…using the user ID admin and the password…that looked like a UUID.…And I've created myself a new user…with more manageable credentials.…
We're at the dashboard and I can now run a scan.…I'll use the task wizard,…the purple wand at the top left to do a simple scan.…I've got my metasploitable system running on 10.0.2.8.…So let's do a scan on that.…
