nessus_agent module allows you to install, link and unlink nessus agents across linux and windows.
Tasks are cross platform so you only need to specify your targets and the task will work out what needs to be done per supported OS across *nix & windows. Whilst they are cross platform tasks, you can only run the
nessus_agent::unlink tasks on a mix of targets comprising of disparate oses at the same time.
bolt task run -t <targets> nessus_agent::install installer_path="C:\tmp\NessusAgent-8.2.2-x64.msi"
RPM & DEB are both supported
bolt task run -t <targets> nessus_agent::install installer_path="/tmp/NessusAgent-8.2.2-es7.x86_64.rpm"
If you're using tenable.io then at the very minimum, you'll only need to pass your linking key and your Nessus agents will pair with your tenable instance however they're a bunch of optional parameters you can take advantage of such agent name, groups, offline install and more.
Pair with Tenable.io
bolt task run -t <targets> nessus_agent::link key=836e1c023f20601162f908234835c0aa1c61c91a4c750a1f094b4adfc396cdde
Pair with Nessus Manager
bolt task run -t <targets> nessus_agent::link key=<yourkey> host="22.214.171.124" port=8834
bolt task run -t <targets> nessus_agent::link key=<yourkey> groups="mygroup"
bolt task run -t <targets> nessus_agent::link key=<yourkey> groups="mygroup,mygroup2,mygroup3"
bolt task run -t <targets> nessus_agent::link key=<yourkey> name="mynode.nodecorp.com"
bolt task run -t <targets> nessus_agent::link key=<yourkey> offline_install=yes
Proxy host & Port
There are also additional flags around proxy usage with Tenable such as pass
bolt task run -t <targets> nessus_agent::link key=<yourkey> host=<myhost> port=<hostport> proxy_host="host.corp.com" proxy_port="8834"
bolt task run -t <targets> nessus_agent::unlink
Upload, Install & Link Agent
All of the parameters found in
nessus_agent::link tasks are supported in this "complete workflow" plan. This plan will allow you to specify a Nessus agent install package locally on your bolt workstation for upload to your remote targets. Once uploaded, it will then install the Nessus agent using the package provided and link the Tenable agent to tenable.io or Nessus Manager, depending on the flags passed.
bolt plan run test::install_link -t <targets> install_file_local="/home/user/NessusAgent-8.2.2-x64.msi" install_file_destination="C:\tmp" installer_path="C:\tmp\NessusAgent-8.2.2-x64.msi" key=<yourkey> groups=<mygroups>
Install and Link only
You can set
upload=false to skip the upload step and only install and link agents if you've already uploaded the Nessus agent installer to the target node(s) via alternate methods.
bolt plan run test::install_link -t <targets> installer_path=<pathtoinstaller> key=<yourkey> groups=<mygroups> upload=false
