This project introduces the capabilities of OpenVAS and the applications this technology has within IT. You will have used OpenVAS on the Raspberry Pi to scan your machine for vulnerabilities. In addition, you will have looked into the different results discovered and then taken that data and filtered it to then be further researched. OpenVAS is an extremely capable tool, and this project provides a good introduction on how useful it can be. There is so much more you can do with the software, so conduct your own research if you want to explore this further. But keep in mind that the Raspberry Pi is limited in processing power and will not be able to handle large volumes of packet data.
