Hello OpenVAS Team,
it is time to go public with OpenVAS-5.
Here is a proposal for the announcement.
Hope it creates good awareness in the public.
Anything we missed or is wrong?
For the OpenVAS Announcement Mailing List I can add a full list
of the new/changed features.
As you can see, OpenVAS-5 will be at LinuxTag in Berlin in May!! :-)
I will be there for a day, too.
All the best
OpenVAS-5: New Asset-Management, Delta-Reports and embedded SCAP-Data.
One year after OpenVAS-4 the fifth version of the tool for vulnerability scanning and management offers several new features. At the same time the number of freely available vulnerability checks has increased to over 25,000.
A very practical extension is the possibility to show the differences between two scan reports and the direct availability of current CPE and CVE information inside the OpenVAS database.
This saves time for users who are finding out about changes and security recommendations. The new asset management adds a second view on scan results. It allows the user to review scan results for any selection of IP devices in the network.
All in all 20 new features were added, especially focusing on simplifying daily use. The systemtic improvements underline the position of OpenVAS as the most advanced Open Source solution for vulnerability management. The new version can be downloaded free and is available as Free Software under the GNU GPL license.
The company Greenbone Networks develops and uses OpenVAS as a basis for its appliance product family for vulnerability scanning and management. Together with the companies SecPod, SecuritySpace and the wider community new vulnerability tests and feature improvements are developed on a daily basis.
The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) supports OpenVAS and uses it, together with many other federal agencies, for their IT security framwork.
OpenVAS-5 can be experienced live at the Linuxtag Conference and Exhibition in Berlin (Germany) from 23rd to 26th of May 2012 at the BSI booth.
