Tenable PVS Proxy Detection

Info Nessus Plugin ID 46212


A proxy service is listening on this port.


The remote service appears to be a Tenable Network Security proxy for either the Tenable Passive Vulnerability Scanner (PVS) or the Tenable Security Center 3 proxy.

PVS monitors network traffic in real-time, detecting server and client vulnerabilities, and a PVS proxy is used by Tenable's SecurityCenter 4 to transfer report data between a PVS sensor and a SecurityCenter console.

The Security Center 3 proxy is for legacy communication requirements.


Limit incoming traffic to this port if desired.
