NESSUS Plugins for Cisco Clean Access ( CCA ) Lots of questions

Got a buntch of questions not answered in the CCO documentation in this area so I wanted to scan the forum for network scanning and vulerability assesments when using Nessus plugins.

- CCA Admin guide states most 2.2 nessus plugins supported but the 3.0 plugins are 5x faster when scanning workstations has anyone tried using the 3.0 in lieue of 2.2?

quote from Tenable employee on

"- WRT to Cisco's Clean Access product though, we were told by Cisco

reps at the RSA booth that Cisco TAC won't support a Clean Access

product running the latest plugins from Tenable. We've also asked

them to remove the reference in their docs about downloading Nessus

plugins from Tenable.

- Does this mean that the next revision of CCA will not by supported by nessus 3.0 at all?

- There are so many plugins available does any body have a list of the most common plugins used and at how many plugins should be active before you see a noticable delay in login time.

- for 3.6(2) you have to manually update your plugins the process for doing this is not on cco. From what I can gather you have to take the plugins.tar.gz file unzip it and add the plugins manually and rezip it as plugins.tar.gz again is that correct?

- Any suggestions or deployments of scanning methods deployed on your network are appreciated.
