Wanted: Become a OpenVAS documentation author


User Manual: Greenbone Security Manager with Greenbone OS 3.1

Greenbone OS 3.1 is based on OpenVAS-8. Several parts of the User Manual can therefore be well used for OpenVAS-8. However, the installtion and setup are substantially different.

OpenVAS 3.1

OpenVAS kompakt

OpenVAS kompakt is a German book about OpenVAS written by Holger Reibold. It was published 2010 by BRAIN MEDIA.

OpenVAS 2

OpenVAS Compendium

The current Version of the OpenVAS Compendium is sadly deprecated. It contains documentation and information that no longer applies to recent OpenVAS Versions and should not be used as a reference for recent OpenVAS Versions.

The deprecated OpenVAS compendium can be found in the OpenVAS files section.

Call for documentation

While the OpenVAS development progresses at an incredible speed, the documentation does not follow up at same pace.

We need more authors on books, manuals or helpful articles in various languages. Also videos are welcome.

If you feel like one, please get in touch with the OpenVAS community.

If you know about good quality material that should be listed here, just let the OpenVAS community know on one of the mailing lists.
