Exercise 1 - Starting OpenVAS
Open Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS) is free software that draws on a database of known vulnerabilities for various types of network devices. The software scans the network and collects information by monitoring various open ports to determine whether a given host is vulnerable to any of the known security threats. Based on the information collected, the vulnerability assessment software suggests solutions to address the detected vulnerabilities.
Exercise 2 - Performing a VA Scan
In this exercise, you will define a new target for vulnerability assessment scanning and run full scan to a Windows 7 device.
