You need to configure all the Linux systems that should be scanned to allow password authentication over SSH.
- Make sure that the following line is present in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file:
- Run the following command:
sudo passwd radar-user
- In the F-Secure Elements Security Center, go to Templates and open the Network scan templates tab.
- Create a new scan template or edit an existing one.
- Enable Linux authenticated scanning using a password as authentication method, and specify the SSH port, encryption key, and the credentials.
- Save the template.
- In the F-Secure Elements Security Center, go to Network scans and in the Group view, find the scan group that you want to set up for authenticated scanning.
- Click the menu icon and select Edit scan group.
- Configure the scan group to use the scan node and template that has been prepared for Linux authenticated scanning.
- Save the changes.
If everything has been configured correctly, it is now possible to scan Linux systems using an authenticated context.
