Domain Names visible on screen and reports The Penetrator allows to enter a domain name instead of an IP address when creating a scan. Starting with this firmware the domain names are visible throughout the whole scan process. This feature has been created for scans, scan templates, on scans created from a template and on the Scan Distribution page. The domain name will also be visible on the reports.
Detection of IP addresses
When a scan is created through a domain name, the corresponding IP address is automatically detected at the moment of the scan. When the scan is created from a template, schedule or repeated from a previous scan, the IP address is now detected immediately before launching the scan, not when the template or schedule are created. This behavior allows to detect the correct target from the corresponding hostname when the target’s IP address is assigned through a DHCP server, and is subject to change over time.
Two new features are available on the Repeated scans. It is possible to alter the scan parameters, for example when it’s necessary to alter the scan profile or the port numbers of a previous scan leaving all the other parameters unchanged. The second feature is the possibility to repeat a previous scan on the nodes that were offline on the previous scan. To do this, click on the red button Repeat Scan on the scan row.
