In this video, learn about advanced vulnerability scanning concepts, including intrusive vs. non-intrusive scanning, credentialed vs. noncredentialed scanning, and the verification of false positives.
- [Instructor] We've already discussed many…of the basic concepts of vulnerability scanning…in this course.…Let's now take a moment to dive deeper…into a few advanced vulnerability scanning topics.…As you set up a vulnerability scan,…you need to carefully consider the type of scan…that you will perform.…Most scanners allow you to choose between intrusive…and non-intrusive, or dangerous and safe modes.…Scans runs in non-intrusive, or safe mode,…will not perform tests that could themselves…disrupt system operation.…
This is the safest way to go when you are worried…about damaging production services,…but this mode does not provide an accurate picture…of security because it fails to show you…if those attacks would have been successful.…One way to balance these concerns is to run tests…against production systems in safe mode,…but then clone those systems running dangerous mode scans…against the images.…When you run vulnerability scans,…you'll receive detailed reports of issues discovered…during the scan.…Sometimes, those reports contain errors.…
