Virtual Environments Vulnerability Assessment By GSM (OpenVAS) – Part 2

Virtual Environments Vulnerability Assessment By GSM (OpenVAS) - Part 2

We have reviewed reasons of have Vulnerability Assessment or Vulnerability Manager in virtual environments and how these software help us to find vulnerabilities on any component of virtual infrastructure. We have reviewed OpenVAS or Greenbone Security Manager and talked about features and abilities.

Now, it’s time to use the GSM server that we had prepared on the previous part. In this part of blog post, we’ll configure a target (ESXi Server) on OpenVAS server, create a task for scan and find the result of scan.

I’ve installed ESXi 6U1 (3029758) on a virtual machine and there is no customized configuration, all configurations are default.

Virtual Environments Vulnerability Assessment By GSM (OpenVAS) – Part 1

Vulnerability Assessment

In virtual environments, any vulnerability has affect on virtual infrastructure and those who get the service including internal and external services. So at least, any organization should have process to identifying vulnerabilities. Identifying vulnerabilities needs tools in IT infrastructure to scan devices, operating systems and applications and find vulnerabilities (Especially security vulnerabilities).

Guest Connected vs RAW Device Mapping (RDM)

iSCSI vs Fiber Channel

RAW Device Mapping (RDM) is one of oldest VMware vSphere features which introduced to resolving some limitation on virtualized environments such as virtual disks size limitation and deploying services top of fail-over clustering services.

You can use a raw device mapping (RDM) to store virtual machine data directly on a SAN LUN, instead of storing it in a virtual disk file. You can add an RDM disk to an existing virtual machine, or you can add the disk when you customize the virtual machine hardware during the virtual machine creation process.
