OpenVAS 8
Full Description

OpenVAS image for Docker

A Docker container for OpenVAS 8 on the Ubuntu 14.04 image. By default, the latest images includes the OpenVAS Base as well as the NVTs and Certs required to run OpenVAS.


Ports available: 443, 9390, 9391


Simply run:

docker run -d -p 443:443 -p 9390:9390 -p 9391:9391 -p 9392:9392 --name openvas amismb/openvas-docker

This will grab the container from the docker registry and start it up. Openvas startup can take some time (4-5 minutes while NVT's are scanned and databases rebuilt), so be patient. Once you see a gasd process in the top command below, the web ui is good to go. Goto https://<machinename>

Username: admin
Password: openvas

To check the status of the process, run:

docker top openvas

In the output, look for the process scanning cert data. It contains a percentage.

To run bash inside the container run:

docker exec -it openvas bash
