To integrate with Windows:

    The left navigation plane appears.

  3. In the left navigation plane, click Settings.

    The Settings page appears.

    The Credentials page appears. The credentials table lists the managed credentials you have permission to view.

  5. Click the button next to the Credentials title.

    The credential form plane appears.

    Option Description Required


    The username to log in to the hosts you want to scan.


    Domain The domain of the username, which is recommended if using domain-linked accounts (managed accounts of a domain that are linked to a managed system).


    BeyondTrust host

    The BeyondTrust IP address or DNS address.


    BeyondTrust port

    The port on which BeyondTrust listens.


    BeyondTrust API user The API user provided by BeyondTrust.


    BeyondTrust API key

    The API key provided by BeyondTrust.


    Checkout duration

    The length of time, in minutes, that you want to keep credentials checked out in BeyondTrust. Configure the Checkout duration to exceed the typical duration of your Tenable Vulnerability Management scans. If a password from a previous scan is still checked out when a new scan begins, the new scan fails.

    Note: Configure the password change interval in BeyondTrust so that password changes do not disrupt your Tenable Vulnerability Management scans. If BeyondTrust changes a password during a scan, the scan fails.


    Use SSL

    When enabled, Tenable Vulnerability Management uses SSL through IIS for secure communications. You must configure SSL through IIS in BeyondTrust before enabling this option.


    Verify SSL certificate

    When enabled, Tenable Vulnerability Management validates the SSL certificate. You must configure SSL through IIS in BeyondTrust before enabling this option.


What to do next:

Verify the integration is working.

  1. On the My Scans page, click the Launch button to initiate an on-demand scan.

  2. Once the scan completes, click the scan.

    The scan details appear.

    Look for the following message - Microsoft Windows SMB Log In Possible: 10394. This validates that authentication was successful.
