openvasmd(8)		    System Manager's Manual		  openvasmd(8)

NAME
       openvasmd  - Manager daemon of the Open Vulnerability Assessment	System
       (OpenVAS)

SYNOPSIS
       openvasmd OPTIONS

DESCRIPTION
       OpenVAS Scanner,	openvassd(8), acts as a	service	and offers a  communi-
       cation  protocol	for its	clients	called OTP. The	core task of the Open-
       VAS Scanner is the actual scan process.

       The OpenVAS Manager is a	OTP client and adds various  management	 func-
       tionalities  to	handle and organise scan results. Thus OpenVAS Manager
       acts as a layer between the OpenVAS Scanner and its  own	 clients  (for
       example	omp(8),	 gsad(8) or gsd(8)) which connect via the OMP protocol
       to the OpenVAS Manager.

       A related service is OpenVAS Administrator,  openvasad(8)  which	 among
       other tasks also	manages	user accounts for OpenVAS.
