BeyondTrust is pleased to announce the availability of Retina Network Security Scanner (RNSS) version 6.1! This release adds basic IPv6 scanning support for SCAP (benchmark) scans. With this enhancement, you are now able to manage SCAP scans in both a blended IPv4/IPv6, and a pure IPv6 environment. Retina’s SCAP Job Wizard has been enhanced with a new option to allow users to enter IPv6 addresses. See below for a screenshot of the SCAP Job Wizard with IPv6 address.
This enhancement marks BeyondTrust’s commitment to support our security community and their needs of being able to scan IPv6 networks. It also compliments a recent new feature in Retina v6.0, the cability to select multiple SCAP benchmarks per scan job – eliminating the need to pair up configuration assessments with only those targets that are applicable.
