I have recently been introduced to OpenVAS for scanning our network at work. I am familiar with nmap, and I am happy with it's performance when used stand-alone from the cli, through iptraf I can see it is scanning at speeds upwards of a thousand packets a second, however when scanning through OpenVAS I can't seem to break 30 packets a second, even with the nmap preferences set to scan 25 concurrent hosts with a --min-rate of 25 packets per second.
I would really like to first scan using nmap then import the results into OpenVAS for further vulnerability testing, Ideally having OpenVAS only probe the open ports that nmap reported.
I have been googling and googling and I have not found any clear instructions on how to import the results. IMO I would think this would be a pretty standard feature.
Any ideas on how I can import grepable or xml nmap results into OpenVAS for further penetration testing?
