In the previous post we got the Login/Logout to the Qualys cloud platform working. This is good work and introduces to some things in Powershell that should help later.
Next we will cover below actually launching a SCAN in the Qualys cloud platform from the command line along with some new options in Powershell such as parameters etc…
We will be passing in three parameters to Powershell:
- Targetip – our TARGET to Scan
- Requestor – an email address or other thing; I use this to send a PDF of the scans report to the original requestor
- ScanProfile – Here we give a default and you will need to look up the profile ID for the scan profile you wish to use. I suggest you have a list of valid ones so you can write a check for this.
As always use at your own risk but let me know if you have questions. I will work on the next version of this primarily on storing the information about the scan so that you can make a call to generate a report on the IP Address that was scanned.
All Questions are welcome as my documentation can be sparse.
