NAME
       greenbone-nvt-sync - updates the	OpenVAS	security checks	from Greenbone
       Security	Feed

SYNOPSIS
       greenbone-nvt-sync

DESCRIPTION
       The OpenVAS Scanner performs several security checks. These are	called
       Network	Vulnerability  Tests  (NVTs) and are mostly implemented	in the
       programming language NASL. Some NVTs are	wrappers for  external	tools.
       As  new	security holes are published every day,	new NVTs appear	in the
       Greenbone Security Feed.	This feed is commercial	and requires a respec-
       tive  subscription  key.	  The OpenVAS project offers a free Feed which
       can be issued via openvas-nvt-sync(8).

       The script greenbone-nvt-sync will fetch	all new	and  updated  security
       checks  and  install  them at the proper	location. Once this is done it
       will try	to restart the openvas-scanner(8) so that  the	new  NVTs  are
       loaded and considered for new security scans. If	your installation does
       not allow automatic restart, you	need to	restart	the scanner manually.
