Nessus is a popular vulnerability scanner by Tenable Network Security. According to Tenable, it’s the most widely used of its kind worldwide. There are several license flavors available, including a free basic edition for home users. Unfortunately, Nessus requires root permissions to run correctly. This means that ironically, not unlike its namesake, the vulnerability scanner itself may be vulnerable to attack. Enter the security-aware Hiawatha webserver and its reverse proxy capabilities.

@Heiko, you're welcome. I hope it's been useful to somebody out there; I always setup Nessus this way, and it's worked very well for me so far.
