Nessus Professional Database Export

A script to export Nessus results regularly into a MySQL database for easy analysis/aggregation.

Use Cases

  • Find occurences of a specific vulnerability across your scans (e.g. in a folder) without having to export all of them to CSV.
  • Search for text in plugin outputs across all your scans.
  • Quickly see trending stats across scan runs (summary stats are calculated at export time and saved in the DB).
  • Build a web app front end to present a subset of results for customers.

Some usage examples here: https://eddiez.me/nessus-db-export/

Prerequisites

  • Nessus Professional
  • MySQL database

Install

  1. git clone https://github.com/eddiez9/nessus-database-export
  2. pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Configuration

  1. Instantiate database schema (see schema.sql file for import)

    e.g. at the mysql command line mysql> source \home\user\Desktop\schema.sql;

  2. Copy config.ini.example to config.ini and fill in all fields

Usage

Install in crontab for scheduled exports or run manually by just calling the script with no arguments:

$ python3 export.py
Processing: REDACTED
Inserting scan run: 69
Inserting scan run: 81
Processing: REDACTED
Processing: REDACTED
Inserting scan run: 87

Once the export is completed you can run whatever queries you want. e.g.:

TODO

  • Check API output for compliance scans and add code to pull in compliance scans
  • Use trash flag to not pull in scans in the trash
