So.. Google for GNU General Public License? 
( ?)
And of course any other license you may encounter within software source code.

You may want to get a lawyer involved.

Onderwerp: Re: [Openvas-discuss] embedding in other tooling


nobody here who can shed any light on this?

I also asked my question through<>, but 
no response there either.

1) Basically, I got an automated reply back, in which the following was stated 
as part of the openvas FAQ:

"The community contributions of Greenbone (like the Greenbone Community
Edition or the actual source code) are free of charge. You do have to
accept the conditions of the GNU General Public License and of some
other Open Source licenses. "

So, which licenses are these or where could I find this information?

2) the website at<> clearly states: " If 
you encounter problems with our infrastructure, have legal questions etc, then 
please contact:<>." => I think my 
questions are definitely legal/commercial of nature, but well, I'm going to ask 
here again too.

3) the website at<> also states: " All 
OpenVAS products are Free Software. Most components are licensed under the GNU 
General Public License (GNU GPL). "  but I can't find any information on the 
website again. Stating "most components" doesn't say a lot.

Therefore, my question: is it allowed to embed the greenbone community edition 
in other commercial offerings, and if so, are there any restrictions/conditions?

Or even just a detailed overview of what components fall under which license? 
"Most components", well...

Thank you in advance for your feedback!

edition, in other tooling for commercial purposes?
If so, what are these restrictions?

Or is there someone else, maybe from openvas itself, who could answer this if 
this isn't the correct location for this question?

Thanks in advance for any feedback!
