Feeds (Non-Admins Only)

The Feeds option displays information about the SecurityCenter feeds and plugin sets and, if permitted, a link to update the plugins either through SecurityCenter or by manually uploading plugins. The displayed feeds are for SecurityCenter Feed, Active Plugins, Passive Plugins, and Event Plugins. Only feeds with valid Activation Codes will be able to be updated.

Plugins are scripts used by the Nessus, PVS, and LCE servers to interpret vulnerability data. For ease of operation, Nessus and PVS plugins are managed centrally by SecurityCenter and pushed out to their respective scanners. LCE servers download their own event plugins and SecurityCenter downloads event plugins for its local reference. SecurityCenter does not currently push event plugins to LCE servers.

For more information about plugin/feed settings, see Configuration Settings.
