.nsr File Extension

Developer: Tenable Network Security
File type: Report File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .nsr. Files with the file extension .nsr can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .nsr files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .nsr file?

The NSR file extension is known as Nessus Security Report File which was developed by Tenable Network Security. It is a file format in the form of text report generated by Nessus, a security application used for conducting network vulnerability scans. It saves the summary information for a security scan and contains less verbose information than an .nbe report file. It is used for network security audits. The NSR format is no longer active. The .nessus format has replaced both the NBE and NSR formats. With Nessus, reports can be customized for executives, system administrators, or auditors. Reports generated in PDF format (requires Oracle Java be installed on the Nessus server) facilitate easy sharing, but you also have the option of generating reports in native Nessus formats or HTML. Reporting is a major part of all Vulnerability Scanners. It is also capable of producing style sheets to transform the .nessus report to another format.

how to open a .nsr file?

Launch a .nsr file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .nsr file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .nsr files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .nsr file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .nsr file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .nsr files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .nsr. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
