About the Open Scanner Protocol (OSP) category


#1

The Open Scanner Protocol is designed to allow controlling various vulnerability scanners. These scanners must either offer the protocol OSP on their own or be connected via an adapter (“OSP wrapper”).

The Greenbone UI allows to configure OSP scanners via section Configuration/Scanner.
OSP scanners can also be controlled via GVM-Tools.

A Python implementation “ospd” helps to quickly develop a OSP wrapper.

This category is about any aspects of developing, accessing and controlling OSP scanners/wrappers,
about all existing OSP scanners and about the ospd Python module.
