Managing NVT signatures

(by Jan-Oliver Wagner)

This section explains what you need to do to allow your OpenVAS-Server to execute only signed NVTs with a trust level you decide.

Currently, some signed NVTs are available by using the command openvas-nvt-sync which is included in openvas-plugins. The signatures correspond to the certificate "OpenVAS Transfer Integrity" available on the OpenVAS website at
