Greenbone Source Edition – Documentation¶
The Greenbone Source Edition (GSE) covers the actual source code of the Greenbone vulnerability scanning and vulnerability management (GVM) application stack.
It is available as regularly updated source code snapshots/release archives confirmed to work and as source code checkouts directly from the source code management (SCM) system. The latter is not recommended for production scenarios as the code is edited on a daily basis and issues and incomplete functionality may appear.
The Greenbone Source Edition is adopted by third parties, for example Linux distributions like Kali, Alpine, etc.
