Dear OpenVAS / Greenbone Users,

we are happy to announce the availability of GVM-Tools. This is a
collection of tools for remote controlling a OpenVAS / Greenbone
setup and is intended to replace the "openvas-cli" module with
its "omp" and "check_omp" command line tools.

The new approach is comprised of interactive and non-interactive clients as
well as supporting libraries. The programming language Python is supported
directly for interactive scripting and library use. But it is also possible
to issue remote GMP/OMP/OSP commands without programming in Python.

The tools are compatible with the connection methods TLS, file socket
and with the SSH GMP connection of Greenbone OS version 4. In other
words, it can be used for any supported Greenbone OS version and for
any supported OpenVAS version.

The source code downloads are available from the usual place:

  http://www.openvas.org/install-source.html

We have prepared standalone binaris for Windows, including the
Python environment making it unnecessary to install anything else.
The latest versions are available as (*)

  http://download.greenbone.net/tools/gvm-cli.exe
  http://download.greenbone.net/tools/gvm-pyshell.exe


GVM-Tools is Open Source under the GNU General Public License.
The source code is currently managed at bitbucket where you can also
find some examples how to use the tools in practice:
