IMHO it is urgent that OpenVAS gets a homepage that looks
nice and provides basic information already now.
This should not wait until the source code cleanup process is
Here is my rough concept. I appreaciate any sort of
comments. Of course, I mostly appreciate volunteers
who might like to create drafts.
Elements that should appear on the main page:
- OpenVAS Logo
See here for the logo that has been proposed in 2006,
but not finally agreed upon.
However, in case we use this logo, we definitely
need a vector version.
I'd really appreciate to start the final logo
decision process as soon as possible.
Not at least the graphical
design of the web site depends on this.
- About area
- A short description of OpenVAS. For example:
"OpenVAS stands for Open Vulnerability Assessment
System and is a network security scanner. It consists
of a server component and a set of plugins to test
various vulnerabilities in remote systems and applications.
It is Free Software under GNU GPL and a fork of Nessus."
- A drawning that roughly illustratates the plugin flow.
I could draft something.
- Download area:
OpenVAS Server, Clients, Documentation
Both, binary packages and source codes.
(current binaries directly, all others on
a download subpage)
- Plugins area:
Total number of available plugins
infos about latest plugins (integrated as RSS feed)
- Support area
- link to mailing lists
- link to where report errors
- link to howto's
- link to FAQ
- link to professional support page
- a cool photo that makes the whole page nice
I do not have anything special in mind and would
be happy about any proposal that could fit for OpenVAS project.
- Which techology to use?
Perhaps just plain HTML files?
