Description (partial)


CCA users are unable to add certain NESSUS scanner plugins to their NAC environment. 

The present Nessus Version that is getting shipped along with CCA is 2.2.7 which is having the NASL_LEVEL value less than 3004. And there are many Plugins which require NASL_LEVEL to be equal to or greater than 3004.Hence the present NAC appliance solution does not support all these plugins.
Upgrading to higher version of NESSUS (version 3 OR 4) may not be possible due to Vendor specific license restrictions but the NAC appliance solution does not support NESSUS version 3 plugins due to vendor licensing restrictions.
