I am still learning the in's and out's of Qualys but this is confusing me a little.
When you go into Asset Search and pull up any machine, there is a value in the General Information tab that reads "ID: XXXXXXXXX". its a random looking 9 character long number.
However I have to search for QID 45179 to see the Qualys Host ID which is a 20+ character string.
So I guess my question is:
What is the difference between ID and Qualys Host ID (QID 45179) ?
Are both ID's random i.e. unique?
Why does the ID exist if Qualys Host ID exists.
