Create the Custom Plugin Package

Required User Role: Administrator

For complete information, see Custom Plugin Packages for NASL and CA Certificate Upload.

To create the .tar.gz or .tgz custom plugin package:

  1. Prepare the individual text files you want to include in the custom plugins package.

    • custom_nasl_archive.tar.gz or custom_nasl_archive.tgz
    • custom_feed_info.inc
    • custom_CA.inc

    Confirm the files meet the requirements described in Custom Plugin Packages for NASL and CA Certificate Upload.

    Note: After upload, the system untars the files within your custom plugin package and overwrites any identically named files already in Tenable.sc or Nessus.

  2. In the command line interface (CLI), tar and compress the files together. (7-Zip or running tar on a Mac does not work for this.) For example:
    # tar -zcvf upload_this.tar.gz custom_feed_info.inc custom_CA.inc

    The system generates a .tar.gz or .tgz file.
