Manage Scan Templates

A scan template enables you to save and reuse a set of scan settings so that you can start another scan more quickly. NeuraLegion provides the following default scan templates:

  • OWASP Top 10 (2017) – The engine only runs the tests for the vulnerabilities included into the "OWASP Top 10" list for 2017.
  • MITRE Top 25 (2019) – The engine only runs the tests for the vulnerabilities included into the "MITRE Top 25" list for 2019.
  • MITRE Top 25 (2020) – The engine only runs the tests for the vulnerabilities included into the "MITRE Top 25" list for 2020.
  • API Scan – Predefined tests that are relevant for API targets.
  • Light Scan – This is a preconfigured optimized scan, during which the engine automatically determines which tests to run, based on the data types that are detected. Some tests will be skipped in favor of speed.
  • Deep Scan – All possible tests are performed during the scan. This is the most thorough scan, which takes the longest time to complete.
  • Passive Scan – The engine selects only host-based passive tests to be run.
