"Wireless Access Point Discovery Safe"
Wireless Access Point Discovery & Safe... jmahoney 1 posts since Jan 12, 2010 We're looking at using Nessus to do automated scanning of our subnets to detect Wireless Access Points. We'll be using this to do network based scanning and another tool (kismet etc.) to do passive scanning. One of my concerns is that according to the guide Tenable put out: http://www.nessus.org/whitepapers/wap-id-nessus.pdf it says it requires Safe Checks disabled. Obviously, this is a major point of concern. I've looked through the nasl file and haven't found anything particularly worrisome but does anyone know why Safe Checks needs to be disabled? If it is disabled what functionality would we lose? Thanks. Generated by Clearspace on 2010-04-08-04:00 1
