OpenVAS pivoting


I just want to ask if it is possible to use credential scan target as a pivot and run NVT’s through it. For example, there is a linux machine in the network that is connected to more networks, but openvas does not have direct access to networks behind this machine, but it is still possible to ssh to machine and have access to other networks.

I’m know there is possibility to install scanner directly to other networks, but this is not an option now because we cannot put anything in that networks. Moreover networks behind the machine are not routed.

Thank you for clarification.

Best regards, Sigi

AFAICT there is no such functionality included in GVM directly so a solution would need to be found via other means (e.g. on operating system level).
