Step 4: Unpacking the sources

find . -name \*.gz -exec tar zxvfp {} \;

Step 5: gvm-libs installation

cd gvm-libs-11.0.0 ;\
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/gvm/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH ;\ 
mkdir build ;\ 
cd build ;\ 
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/gvm .. ;\ 
make ;\ 
make doc ;\ 
make install ;\ 
cd /opt/gvm/src

Step 6: config and build openvas-smb

cd openvas-smb-1.0.5 ;\ 
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/gvm/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH ;\ 
mkdir build ;\ 
cd build/ ;\ 
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/gvm .. ;\ 
make ;\ 
make install ;\ 
cd /opt/gvm/src

Step 7 : config and build scanner

cd openvas-7.0.0 ;\ 
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/gvm/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH ;\ 
mkdir build ;\ 
cd build/ ;\ 
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/gvm .. ;\ 
make ;\ 
make doc ;\ 
make install ;\
cd /opt/gvm/src

Step 8 : Redis configuration

Please do the steps as root user ( sudo su root)

ldconfig ;\
cp /etc/redis/redis.conf /etc/redis/redis.orig ;\
cp /opt/gvm/src/openvas-7.0.0/config/redis-openvas.conf /etc/redis/ ;\
chown redis:redis /etc/redis/redis-openvas.conf ;\
echo "db_address = /run/redis-openvas/redis.sock" > /opt/gvm/etc/openvas/openvas.conf ;\
systemctl enable redis-server@openvas.service ;\
systemctl start redis-server@openvas.service
sysctl -w net.core.somaxconn=1024sysctl vm.overcommit_memory=1&nbsp;
echo "net.core.somaxconn=1024"&nbsp; >> /etc/sysctl.conf
echo "vm.overcommit_memory=1" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
cat << EOF > /etc/systemd/system/disable-thp.service
[Unit]
Description=Disable Transparent Huge Pages (THP)

[Service]
Type=simple
ExecStart=/bin/sh -c "echo 'never' > /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled && echo 'never' > /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/defrag"

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target
EOF
systemctl daemon-reload ;\
systemctl start disable-thp ;\
systemctl enable disable-thp ;\
systemctl restart redis-server

Step 9 : updating path

Modify sudoers file with visudo

Type visudo and modify

Defaults        secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/snap/bin:/opt/gvm/sbin"

### Allow the user running ospd-openvas, to launch openvas with root permissions
gvm ALL = NOPASSWD: /opt/gvm/sbin/openvas
gvm ALL = NOPASSWD: /opt/gvm/sbin/gsad

Step 10:  Update nvt and upload plugins in redis with openvas

Login as gvm Update nvt

greenbone-nvt-sync 
sudo openvas -u

Step 11: gvmd configuration

cd gvmd-9.0.0 ;\
 export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/gvm/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH ;\
 mkdir build ;\
 cd build/ ;\
 cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/gvm .. ;\
 make ;\
 make doc ;\
 make install ;\
 cd /opt/gvm/src

Step 12 : PostgreSQL configuration

Exit from gvm and run as a sudo enabled user

sudo -u postgres bash
createuser -DRS gvm
createdb -O gvm gvmd

psql gvmd
create role dba with superuser noinherit;
grant dba to gvm;
create extension "uuid-ossp";
exit
exit

Step 13 : Fix certs and update feeds and create admin user

gvm-manage-certs -agreenbone-certdata-sync ;\
greenbone-scapdata-sync 
gvmd --create-user=admin --password=yourpassword

Step 14: Update IANA Service names

&nbsp;xsltproc /opt/gvm/share/gvm/gvmd/portnames_update.xsl service-names-port-numbers.xml | sed "s/^<.*>$//g" | psql -v ON_ERROR_STOP=1 -q --pset pager=off --no-align -d gvmd -t

gsa installation

cd gsa-9.0.0 ;\
 export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/gvm/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH ;\
 mkdir build ;\
 cd build/ ;\
 cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/gvm .. ;\
 make ;\
 make doc ;\
 make install ;\
 touch /opt/gvm/var/log/gvm/gsad.log ;\
 cd /opt/gvm/src

Step 15 : Setting up virtual environment and ospd installation

Virtual Environment

cd src ;\
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/gvm/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH ;\
virtualenv --python python3.7  /opt/gvm/bin/ospd-scanner/ ;\
source /opt/gvm/bin/ospd-scanner/bin/activate

ospd

cd ospd-2.0.0 ;\
pip3 install . ;\
cd /opt/gvm/src

ospd-openvas

cd ospd-openvas-1.0.0 ;\
pip3 install . ;\
cd /opt/gvm/src

Step 16: Creating startup scripts

sudo su root

EOF
systemctl daemon-reload ;\
systemctl enable gvmd ;\
systemctl enable gsad ;\
systemctl enable ospd-openvas ;\
systemctl start gvmd ;\
systemctl start gsad ;\
systemctl start ospd-openvas

Step 17 : Create a new scanner

The default host for default scanner is not in /opt/gvm/var/run/ but with  /var/… So we have to create a new scanner by defining scanner-host to  /opt/gvm/var/run/ospd.sock

gvmd --create-scanner="TEST OPENVAS Scanner" --scanner-type="OpenVas" --scanner-host=/opt/gvm/var/run/ospd.sock

Verify the scanner

gvmd --verify-scanner=<Scanner-ID>

Type netstat -nltpu to verify port 443 is listening for connetions
