Remote, Local, One-liner scan
Vuls has three modes of scan methods: Remote scan mode and Local scan mode and Server mode.
Remote scan Mode
Remote scan mode connect to the scan target server via SSH and scan by issuing some commands.
Local scan mode
Local scan mode does not need SSH, it runs commands directly on the local host for scanning.
- No SSH needed. No scanner needed. Only issuing Linux commands directly on the scan target server.
- First, start Vuls in server mode and listen as an HTTP server.
- Next, issue a command on the scan target server to collect software information. Then send the result to Vuls Server via HTTP. You receive the scan results as JSON format.
