24. Tools

This chapter presents some additional tools which may be used with the GSM appliance.

24.1. omp

The omp command line tool implements the OpenVAS Management Protocol (OMP). This tool is supplied by Greenbone Networks for both the Linux and the Windows operating system. You can download the tool at:

  • GNU/Linux omp:
    • SHA1 checksum: 60c99fc921c5bf01dbb9f6113d2d887a372ce243
    • SHA256 checksum: 851248f2884d370fa43168c7e092269505b1e7e3ee0f03f03a9cbe84ac7cb9c6
  • Microsoft Windows omp.exe (digitally signed by Greenbone Networks GmbH)

The listed checksums were checked and found to be valid on August 29th 2016 and may be outdated in the future. Please contact Greenbone support for current checksums if the checksums do not match.

The tool is a statically linked executable file that should work on most systems. Greenbone has released all components as open source so you can build the tool for other systems as well:

The usage of the tool is explained in section OpenVAS Management Protocol.
