I’ve been looking for a good open source vulnerability scanner that can preform authenticated scans. NMAP has scanning modules but it doesn’t preform an authenticated scan. You, apparently, have to use a silly work around using the brute force module, but it doesn’t work on all services.
I’ve looked at OpenVAS, and that thing needs an over haul from what I can tell. it looks like something out of the 80’s.
Ideally I’d like to have a scanner I can run from the command line, and can preform authenticated scans. This seems like something that should be a no brainier.
