In last month Greenbone Networks and OpenVAS development team have finally presented new OpenVAS 9 with new GUI, improved multi-scanner support, improved asset management, etc. We have been waiting for this release for 2 years!
For installing OpenVAS 9 from the sources I used the same script as for OpenVAS 8 installation last year. More details about this script and why you may need it you can read in the post “openvas_commander for OpenVAS installation and management“.
I fixed the script a bit because of these changes in OpenVAS9:
- openvas-nvt-syncwas renamed to greenbone-nvt-sync
- openvas-mkcert и openvas-mkcert-client were replaced by openvas-manage-certs
