I have a web application to scan. I had used standard login to scan that but it failed (Authentication Status Failure). The application is using the old school html form tag with action attribute and a method post.
When I tried the same with selenium then it worked. Can someone please help me understand what do these Standard Login, Selenium script and Custom authentication mean? My understanding about selenium from Qualys videos is that it records all the steps and replays all in same sequence when it see the base URL.
But why did the Standard Login not work?
