Installing Nessus on Kali Linux and Doing a Credentialed Scan (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Installing Nessus on Kali Linux and Doing a Credentialed Scan  

I recorded this video twice. First time, the sound was hideous when the fan came on. I decided to re-record it and post both versions. I cover installing Nessus on Kali Linux and doing Nessus credentialed scans using Windows passwords and Linux SSH keys.

2nd Recording, Better Sound:

dpkg -i Nessus-5.2.4-debian6_i386.deb
/etc/init.d/nessusd start

On Target:
sudo -i
apt-get install openssh-server

cd /home/nessus
mkdir .ssh

ssh-keygen -t dsa
scp .ssh/id_dsa.pub root@192.168.1.151:/home/nessus/.ssh/authorized_keys

On Target:
chown -R nessus:nessus ~nessus/.ssh/
chmod 0600 ~nessus/.ssh/authorized_keys
chmod 0700 ~nessus/.ssh/
usermod -a -G sudo nessus
