The two project run entirely separately, with very little indication that
there will ever be any cooperation between them.
# [14:43:11] Dink Hello, I have several questions about openvas. 1) Can I use my current professional feed of nessus and use it on openvas? 2) How does the plugins compare to nessus? ie Release schedule, accuracy etc 3) Are there any good reporting/analysis tools for openvas ?
# [14:45:01] Dink and 4) Can I use openvas client to connect to my nessus server? I tried and only seemed to be able to use OTP vs NTP.
# [14:47:09] [machine] dink: maybe, although legally, i believe the nessus license prevents you 2) plugins vary... not least of which, because we check for issues that nessus misses and vice versa 3) anything that can import nbe should be fine 4) nope, the underlying protocols are significantly changed
# [14:47:20] mwiegand Dink: 1) This is explictly forbidden in your license agreement with Tenable.
# [14:48:39] Dink 3) Any suggestions on reporting/analysis tools ?
# [14:49:16] [machine] mwiegand: i'm pretty sure tenable would be unable to enforce that license in europe...
# [03:39:51] Dink Hello I currently have a professional feed of nessus. Is it possible to somehow incorporate this into openvas?
# [06:11:32] mib_dv9ygk Dink you carefully have to read the license/eula/contract. I just know that its says that you cannot use the free feed with anything non-tenable
