Installation only package for disconnected scanner

ILMT should support installation only pakages for disconnected scanner.


A lot of my customers installing ILMT Lite with disconnected scannner for security reasons, like:

  • no access to the Internet (BigFix Fixlet Server)

  • no admin access to the sanned systems

  • control of transport (user, ports, network topology etc.) between cleint /server

and not while airgap envirements are needed.

This works fine for them but these customers also like to have control about the scheduuling of the disconnected scanners, again for security reasons because otherwise local admins, especially on Windows systems, might make changes or delete local schedules for the disconnected scanners. Centralized Scheduling can be more easily controlled and monitored.

Therefore it is neccessary to have installation only packages for distributed scanners.
