Kali - Openvas


It appears openvas isn’t available in the latest VB Kali download. Is that expected?


Edit: Appears we have to install this package with the latest Kali build: https://technowikis.com/12315/how-to-install-openvas-on-kali-linux-2020

It’s not necessarily obvious but openvas becomes gvm after sudo apt install openvas, e.g. running the initial set up as gvm-setup.

did you evr get this working as i managed to figure out the gvm install command but after i installed the openvas in kali i can not get it to run

i am getting this error message when i run gvm-check-setup
Step 6: Checking Greenbone Security Assistant (GSA) …
ERROR: No Greenbone Security Assistant (gsad) found.
FIX: Please install Greenbone Security Assistant.

ERROR: Your GVM-20.8.0 installation is not yet complete!

Please follow the instructions marked with FIX above and run this
script again.

and this error when i try to start gvm
xecuting “sudo gvm-start”
awk: fatal: cannot open file `/etc/default/greenbone-security-assistant’ for reading (No such file or directory)
i have tried totally removing GVM from kali and even deleting the gvmd database from postgres then reinstalling and still the same.

Your gvm is not installed correctly. As seen from the error, the greenbone security assistant should be installed. Install that first and then run check setup. It will tell you what to install further. I followed the steps in the FIX and I was able to successfully install it.
