Manual feed updates and scanner connection

Unread post by GSEnrg »

I'm testing a solution for my enviroment using 3 instances of GSM CE.

First of all, I would like to manually upload the feed package, but I'm not sure about what to do after decompress the content in /opt/greenbone/feed/plugins.
Actually I can see the NVT in the the Feed status tab of the web consolle, but SCAP and CERT are still missing.

On other side I would like to understand how to connect remote scanners to the manager, in particular how works the certificate authentication required in the Credential tab of the web consolle. Is necessary to create both the certificate and the private key on the scanners and then import them to the manager?

Hope someone can help with that, I didn't find any information about that in the forum.

Thank you very much

Yeah so I normally generate everything from one system (the one running manager) and then copy the certs from there to openvas scanner nodes. It saves a lot of time sorting out the CA's that way
