Via OSP the vulnerability management can control various vulnerability scanners. These scanners must either offer the protocol OSP on their own or connected via an adapter ("OSP wrapper").
Greenbone OS offers OSP wrappers for some scanners directly integrated into the appliance. It is also possible to connect OSP wrappers that run on other systems.
The web interface of Greenbone OS allows to bind further OSP scanners via section Configuration/Scanner. The OSP wrappers which are directly integrated in GOS are activated via gos-admin-menu.
This technical specification is only relevant for developing your own OSP wrapper. The GSM user manual provides an introduction to OSP development.
