SSL Client Certificate Authentication

Nessus supports use of SSL client certificate authentication. This allows use of SSL client certificates, smart cards, and CAC authentication when the browser is configured for this method.

Nessus allows for password-based or SSL Certificate authentication methods for user accounts. When creating a user for SSL certificate authentication, the nessuscli mkcert-client utility is used through the command line on the Nessus server.
