Launch the Web Interface

To launch the configuration interface, open a supported web browser on a system that has access to the system’s network address space and type the URL for your SecurityCenter: https://<SERVER ADDRESS OR NAME>/.

Where <SERVER ADDRESS OR NAME> is the IPv4 or IPv6 address or hostname for your SecurityCenter.

Note: You must access the SecurityCenter web interface using a secure web connection (https). You must enable TLS 1.0 in your browser in order to complete the secure connection to SecurityCenter. SecurityCenter 5.6.x does not listen on port 80.

Use the top navigation bar to navigate within the SecurityCenter user interface. Tenable does not recommend using your browser’s back and forward buttons.

Note: Tenable™ recommends clearing your browser cache before loading the web interface.

Inital Login

When you log in to SecurityCenter for the first time, SecurityCenter displays the Quick Setup Guide welcome page to begin a multi-step setup process for initial configuration. For more information about quick setup, see Quick Setup.

Subsequent Login
