API Keys (an Access Key and a Secret Key) are used to authenticate with the Nessus REST API (version 6.4 or greater) and passed with requests using the "X-ApiKeys" HTTP header.
The User Profile / API Keys page allows you to generate API keys.
Select the Generate button to create an Access Key and a Secret Key.
- API Keys are only presented upon initial generation. Please store API Keys in a safe location, as they cannot be retrieved later.
- API Keys cannot be retrieved by Nessus. If lost, the API Keys must be regenerated.
- Regenerating the API Keys immediately unauthorizes any applications currently utilizing the key.
