AutoNessus – Script to Communicate with Nessus API
Start & Help
python autoNessus.py python autoNessus.py -h
Both will run the help menu and display a list of options.
This script authenticates to the Nessus server when supplying any other flag than -h. Correct URL and credentials must be placed on lines 52-56 of the script.
List all scans and scan IDs (scan IDs to be used with other flags)
python autoNessus.py -l
Start scan 42
python autoNessus.py -sS 42
Pause scan 42
python autoNessus --pause 42
If you would like to start an already completed scan (one with a "completed" status) you must add 'completed' to the list on line 272. This was done to ensure that scans would not re-run once completed.
