Run Scans to Discover Certificates

Scan your assets to discover certificates that are installed on the host assets in your environment.

To initiate a scan, go to Assets > External Sites and click Scan corresponding to the desired FQDN or IP Address.

Certificate View runs scans for all saved sites periodically and fetches data. In the Last Scan column, you can view when the site was last scanned.

To run scans from VM/VMDR

You can run scans or schedule scans from VM/VMDR only if you have a trial or a full subscription of Certificate View.

Go to VM/VMDR > Scans > Scans > New > CertView Scan and choose your scan settings.

We recommend the SSL Certificates profile to get started. You can easily configure a profile with the various scan options, i.e. what ports to scan, whether to use authentication and more.

A limited set of SSL certificate QIDs is always used for CertView scans.
