The Nessus Project aims to provide to the internet community a free, powerful, up-to-date and easy to use remote security scanner.
A security scanner is a software which will audit remotely a given network and determine whether bad guys (aka crackers) may break into it, or misuse it in some way.
Unlike many other security scanners, Nessus does not take anything for granted. That is, it will not consider that a given service is running on a fixed port - that is, if you run your web server on port 1234, Nessus will detect it and test its security. It will not make its security tests regarding the version number of the remote services, but will really attempt to exploit the vulnerability.
Nessus is very fast, reliable and has a modular architecture that allows you to fit it to your needs.
