Using Nessus to call Nikto

September 5, 2008 – 5:41 AM

Earlier this year, Michel Arboi wrote a blog post explaining how to use Nessus to call Nikto and incorporate the results into Nessus output. Most newcomers to Nessus have enabled the nikto.nasl wrapper only to find it produced no output. Some Nessus users have found various ways to ensure Nikto was called correctly and the output displayed. Others chose to run Nikto separately for various reasons. The following guide will explain how to easily configure Nessus to properly call Nikto. This will allow you to save considerable time, especially on scans against a large amount of systems.
