Can annyone please tell me whaat steps or tests does qualys perform during an internal maap scan by our appliannce??
Are there some impacts during the scann?
Map scans are typically performed using two techniques: DNS Reconnaissance and/or Host Sweep.
DNS Reconnaissance collects host data from your DNS servers, while Host Sweep uses a combination of ICMP, TCP and UDP probes.
The impact of a Map scan is minimal (it is designed to be very lightweight) so a maximum of 20 TCP and 10 UDP ports is used.
The Map options (within an Option Profile) will let you adjust the TCP and UDP port numbers. Additionally you can disable either the DNS or Host Sweep probes. GoTo Scans > Option Profiles.
