Set an Encryption Password
If you set an encryption password, Nessus encrypts all policies, scans results, and scan configurations. You must enter the password when Nessus restarts.
Caution: If you lose your encryption password, it cannot be recovered by an administrator or Tenable Support.
To set an encryption password in the Nessus user interface:
In Nessus, in the top navigation bar, click Settings.
The About page appears.
- Click the Master Password tab.
- In the New Password box, type your encryption password.
Click the Save button.
Nessus saves the encryption password.
