I have several custom nasl scripts that I have used with Nessus and they work well. Management has decided to stop using Nessus and switch over to OpenVAS. I would like to bring the scripts over and install them into OpenVAS. In my ideal world, I would like to first validate the scripts and I believe that I can use the parse option of openvas-nasl command to do so. I would also like to create an option were I name these scripts, perhaps “custom” and then run a scan only using the custom scripts.
I have attempted to create a directory under the …/plugins directory with the scripts copied over and then openvasmd --rebuild but that does not seem to add any scripts from the custom directory.
Can you point me in the right direction on how I SHOULD be installing these scripts?
