Alert Standard Format / Remote Management and Control Protocol Detection

info Nessus Plugin ID 45555
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


A remote management service is running on the remote host.


The remote host is an Alert Standard Format (ASF) aware device that can be controlled remotely using Remote Management and Control Protocol (RMCP).

ASF is a DMTF standard that provides a remote control and alerting interface between management consoles and ASF-aware hosts.

RMCP is a network protocol used by a management console to remotely control an ASF-aware host. RMCP Security-Extensions Protocol (RSP), a security-enhanced version of RMCP, provides authentication and integrity when sending RMCP messages.


Disable this service if you do not use it, or filter incoming traffic to this port.
