Can OnenVAS scan within docker overlay host files?

When Nessus scans a host using credentials it has the ability to search through all files on the host and search within some files. Of interest is how it can scan within Docker overlay files. E.g. the files like:

  • /var/lib/docker/overlay2/4de822975f5d5440a4f3df2f32a4c7b78f3b3e0fa41415e91f11400c5195f6a3/merged
  • /var/lib/docker/overlay2/4de822975f5d5440a4f3df2f32a4c7b78f3b3e0fa41415e91f11400c5195f6a3/merged
  • /var/lib/docker/overlay2/4de822975f5d5440a4f3df2f32a4c7b78f3b3e0fa41415e91f11400c5195f6a3/work

And when Nessus finds and scans those files it’s able to identify the components within the associated docker images. I scanned a host that had running images with OpenVAS and it had root credentials, but sadly it seemed openVAS was not able to do this.

There is currently no functionality / support included in GVM to scan docker images / overlays.
