About the Greenbone Management Protocol (GMP) category

The Greenbone Management Protocol is the central API allowing to control all functionalities of the Greenbone Vulnerability Manager and thus of the Greenbone Security Manager appliances as well. Even the web-client GSA exclusively uses GMP to communicate with the back-end.
Technically speaking, GMP is a XML-based human-readable, stateless request-response protocol.

This category is about any aspects of accessing and controlling the Greenbone technologies via GMP. This includes questions about the protocol itself, about GMP-Scripts and about the gvm-tools.
