Exercise 1 - Configuring and Managing OpenVAS

Open Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS) is a 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. Please refer to your course material or use your preferred search engine to research this topic in more detail.

In this exercise, we will configure the OpenVAS scanner.
