The Headless browser can 100% map the content of a web application. This technology is necessary when you are willing to detect as many flaws as possible, because this technology is the closest thing to the actions of an internet user: scrolling a page, clicking on buttons, filling out dynamic forms…
In the case of these two solutions, HTTPCS, just like Detectify, provides a vulnerability scanner equipped with the Headless technology.
Flaws and Grey Box
Unlike the Black Box test in which the robot cannot go beyond a certain authentication point, the Grey Box test allows it.
Therefore, in Grey Box mode, the robot has the user ID and the password to detect as many flaws as possible within the audited web application.
Detectify and HTTPCS both handle the tests in Grey Box mode.
Both web application scanners can detect the flaws in the main dictionaries of flaws, whether they are OWASP or CVE vulnerabilities.
The «zero-day» flaws are taken into account only by HTTPCS, which manually implements them, on a daily basis for a perpetual improvement of its robot. These zero-day flaws go further than the OWASP or the CVE because they have never been publicly fixed.
Flaws and Grey Box
Flaws and Grey Box
A false positive is to a positive result to a test, even though it should be negative. Regarding flaw detection, a false positive is a flaw qualified as «exploitable» when it is not.
The user will receive a warning about the presence of a flaw, and will have to manually check its exploitability.
The manual re-processing of each flaw in order to ensure its exploitability may be a huge waste of time for the technical teams.
The management and processing of false positives vary from one vulnerability scanner to another.
Detectify manually detects false positives. The solution requires its users to notify false positives to the support team just so they are not detected as flaws anymore. For every single false positive, the user will have to warn the Detectify support.
Unlike Detectify, HTTPCS guarantees a 0 false positive rate. In order to make this possible, the HTTPCS vulnerability scanner will test the detected flaw and check its exploitability upfront thanks to its flaw simulator provided.
This guarantee, which is unique on the market of vulnerability scanners, makes a difference and brings HTTPCS to a higher level compared to its competitors.
