This article, primarily for IT security professionals, describes how to use IBM WebSphere® Portal to encapsulate a security scan tool. Users can access a portal to request a scan of their own computers; they see the results of the scan in the portal or in an email. You learn how to integrate the scanning tool, which runs as a service on a server, with your company portal. The tool delivers the results of the scan to the user through the portal interface. Readers should have experience with Java programming, and have a good understanding of database development, the Nessus open-source vulnerability scanning tool, and portlet development for Websphere Portal.
