by Sunil Vakharia - Monday, 10 November 2003.

Topics covered include:

Part I: Scan Types

1) Default scan

2) Nessus scan with admin rights

3) Nessus scan with access to registry

4) So how do we give Nessus that inside information

Part II: Configuration issues

1) Configuration on Nessus' end

2) Configuration on target' end

3) Why not use Administrator accounts?

4) Special account: nessus

5) Enhacements in a domain environment
