Palo Alto Firewall Example Audit Items

Nessus utilizes XSL Transforms (XSLT) and a native API to request information from PAN-OS based Palo Alto devices. Requests are made via the HTTP or HTTPS interface of the firewall, and require Superuser or Superuser (readonly) administrator credentials for PAN-OS >= 4.1.0, and Superuser administrator credentials on PAN-OS < 4.1.0. This allows you to perform audits against an operational config on the device.
