    Caution: Tenable strongly recommends encrypting communication between the Nessus scanner and the CyberArk AIM gateway using HTTPS and/or client certificates. For information on securing the connection, refer to the Nessus User Guide and the Central Credential Provider Implementation Guide located at (login required).

    Note: The Username option also adds the Address parameter of the API query and assigns the target IP of the resolved host to the Address parameter. This may lead to failure to fetch credentials if the CyberArk Account Details Address field contains a value other than the target IP address.
