The Vulnerability Research Engineer is part of the Research Department. Tenable maintains a staff of engineers who keep track of all new publicized vulnerabilities and then develop 'plugins' for the Nessus vulnerability scanner. These 'plugins' are short programs that efficiently and accurately test scanned systems for the presence of the vulnerability. Often, being able to accurately test for the vulnerability involves analyzing vendor-supplied security patches, manually configuring vulnerable targets in a virtual environment, analyzing the system or application to reliably understand the impact of the vulnerability then developing a method to test for the vulnerability remotely. For this particular position, we’re looking for an engineer to focus solely on Web Application Security plugins.
