Integration with Nessus Professional



I am trying to pull logs from Nessus Professional installed on ec2 instance into Splunk. I installed Tenable Add-on for Splunk and Tenable App for Splunk. I am trying to configure Account within Tenable Add-on for Splunk. I am using Splunk 7.3.5. In the Add Account form, I see Tenable.io, Tenable.sc credentials, and Tenable.sc certificate inTenable Account Type drop down list. I chose Tenable.sc credentials based on some documentation found online. Is it correct selection? Also, within Address, I chose ip address of Nessus Professional in the format of format. I did not mention any port such as 8834. I unselected 'Verify SSL Support' checkbox. I provided the username and password of service account created with Nessus Professional. There is no proxy. So I unchecked 'Proxy Enable' checkbox. When I saved, I am getting exception to check IP Address, Username and Password. I tried Tenable.io Account Type, just for curiosity, even though it is incorrect. I provided the access key ID and Secret Access Key for the user created in Nessus Professional within 'Add Account' form for Tenable.io Type. I am still getting same exception. Can you please let me know what I am doing wrong. What all ports do I need to open for communication between my machine with Splunk browser and Nessus Professional machine? Also, what prirvileges should the Nessus Professional user need to have? Also, is there a better way to feed Nessus Professional logs into Splunk?

Thanks a lot for your help

Good day.

Have you found an option to upload Nessus reports to Splunk?

If yes, please share information.

Thank you!

Hi @nspires.  I'm attempting to do the same thing.  Did you have any luck with

Nessus Pro?  I've done it successfully with Tenable.io for a client but now need to get Pro working.

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
