Register Industrial Security Offline via the CLI

If your Industrial Security installation cannot reach the Internet directly, use the following procedure to register and update plugins:

On the system running Industrial Security, type the following command:

Platform

Command to Run

Red Hat Linux / CentOS

# /opt/industrial-security/bin/industrial-security --challenge

Windows

C:\Program Files\Tenable\Industrial Security\industrial-security --challenge

This produces a challenge code similar to the following:

569ccd9ac72ab3a62a3115a945ef8e710c0d73b8

Go to https://plugins.nessus.org/v2/offline-industrial-security.php and paste the challenge code as well as the Activation Code you received previously from Tenable into the appropriate text boxes. This produces a URL that gives you direct access to the Industrial Security plugins. Save this URL, as it will be used every time you update your plugins. In addition, a license key and the associated industrial-security.license file is produced. Copy this file to the host running Industrial Security in the appropriate directory.

Once the industrial-security.license file is copied, run the industrial-security --register-offline command to install the file:

Platform

Directory

Red Hat Linux / CentOS

# /opt/industrial-security/bin/industrial-security --register-offline /path/to/industrial-security.license

Windows

C:\Program Files\Tenable\industrial-security\Industrial Security --register-offline "C:\path\to\industrial-security.license"

The newest plugins can be obtained by navigating to the URL provided in the previous step. Here, you receive a TAR file (e.g., is-2.0.tar.gz). Copy the file to Industrial Security and then type the appropriate command for your platform:

Platform

Command

Red Hat Linux / CentOS

# /opt/industrial-security/bin/industrial-security --update-plugins /path/to/is-2.0.tar.gz

Windows

C:\Program Files\Tenable\Industrial Security\industrial-security --update-plugins C:\path\to\is-2.0.tar.gz
