Nessus XML StylesheetI have done some work updating the XML stylesheet that comes with the Nessus security scanner to produce better output.
The updated .xsl file can be found here (zip archive). The stylesheet was last updated on 9 January 2006.
WARNING - I have tested this style sheet a little and it seems to work okay,
but I have not done any extensive testing so I would not recommend relying on
the output until more validation has been done. While I don't see how using this
stylesheet could have any damaging side-effects, the html output of applying
this stylesheet could omit some results or associate results with the wrong
systems. Use at your own risk.
The major changes I have made are that results are now sorted by IP and by
port and that there is a listing of machines / ports with each vulnerability at
the bottom of the output file. I have been applying it with xsltproc on Linux.
It gives a couple warnings, but it works. Example:
