Raspberry Pi’s are extremely popular for lightweight and inexpensive computing solutions around the world. Raspberry Pi’s are being used for just about anything that you can think of that needs light computing power. Since vulnerability scanners have low resource requirements, using a Raspberry Pi makes a lot of sense.

Join me in this video as we walk through the required steps to turn your Raspberry Pi 4 into a Nessus vulnerability scanner. This is a fun and exciting project that will give you hands on experience with an actual vulnerability scanner.
