Getting Started with StackHawk

Authenticated Scanning

Now that you’ve sorted out the basic configuration, it’s time to configure authenticated scanning.

For many web applications, your most important information from a security perspective will live behind a login screen. StackHawk supports the following types of automated authentication for security testing:

  • Username/Password Authentication + Cookie Authorization 
  • Username/Password Authentication + Bearer Token Authorization 
  • External Token Authentication + Custom Token Authorization 

Our documentation has all of the details, including examples, of how to build out your authenticated scans.

Next Up: how to triage and fix the findings from your scan.

As always, we are here to help at support@stackhawk.com.
