  • Nessus is a tool designed to automate the testing and discovery of known security problems. Typically someone, a hacker group, a security company, or a researcher discovers a specific way to violate the security of a software product. The discovery may be accidental or through directed research; the vulnerability, in various levels of detail, is then released to the security community. Nessus is designed to help identify and solve these known problems, before a hacker takes advantage of them.

    62. 62. Package Deployment Scheduling<br />Package Deployment Scheduling - enables the user to schedule the package deployment either directly on the appliance or through appliance group from the AMS GUI. This helps the AMS GUI administrator to plan in advance and schedule the package deployment during off peak hours. <br />35<br />
    63. 63. SNMP on the AMS<br />Redhat™ SNMP server will be started on the AMS and all the advantages of SNMP monitoring and statistics can be utilized on the AMS.<br />36<br />
    64. 64. VitalQIP DB Import/Export VIA AMS<br />Authorized users to perform VitalQIP database export/import operations from the web interface. Multiple exports can be stored on the AMS based on disk availability.<br />37<br />
    65. 65. Multiple Syslog Servers<br />This enables AMS GUI users to define up to a maximum of 10 remote logging servers for each individual appliance to send syslog data to from AM 1.7 onwards.<br />38<br />
    66. 66. VitalQIP DNS High Availability (DNS-HA) <br />Notes:<br /><ul><li>Major advantages of DNS-HA: Improved uptime, single Virtual IP (VIP) address for clients, etc.
    67. 67. Only 1 server in DNS-HA Pair is active at any given time
    68. 68. VIP points to active server
    69. 69. Heartbeat used to monitor status of active server and DNS service
    70. 70. Automatic failover to Standby server occurs in event of failure
    71. 71. Stealth Master configuration is best practice (not mandatory) for updating DNS zones
    72. 72. Stealth Master could also be resident on ESM appliance
    73. 73. VIP must be on same subnet
    74. 74. as Active/Standby servers
    75. 75. Standby server is hot/active
    76. 76. AMM1200 appliances are shown, but DNS-HA also runs on AMM500 and AMM5000 appliances (both appliances in pair should be of same model)
    77. 77. DNS-HA feature is only available on VitalQIP appliances

    80. 80. DHCP-HA available on appliances (AMM500, AMM1200, AMM5000) as well as non-appliance servers
    81. 81. Recommended maximum is 5:1 (5 Primary servers can be supported by a single Failover DHCP server)
    82. 82. Failover server is “hot” and tracks DHCP “DORA” messages and leases
    83. 83. If heartbeat determines that Primary server/service is down, Failover takes over (client does not notice the change)
    84. 84. When Primary service is restored, Primary and Failover servers sync active lease databases and Primary takes over
    85. 85. Router “Helpers” point to both Primary and Failover server
    86. 86. Primary and Failover servers do not need to be on the same Subnet
    87. 87. No crossover cable needed for Heartbeat</li></ul>Active leases<br />Active leases<br />Active leases<br />Heartbeat<br />Failover DHCP<br />Server<br />DHCP-HA N:1 Failover<br />DHCP Discover<br />Messages<br />40<br />
