Form Authentication OTP Support
The Netsparker Standard 5.5 November 2019 Update introduced support for form authentication using an OTP, including from a QR code. This enables you to use two alternative methods of two-factor authentication for your website applications.
Netsparker supports various types of authentication mechanisms in the Netsparker Standard edition including Form; Basic, NTLM/Kerberos; Header; Client Certificate, Smart Card; OAuth2, and Manual.
In the Netsparker Standard 5.5 November 2019 Update, we introduced support for form authentication using an OTP. This new feature enables authenticated pages on target website applications to be included in scans.
Two types of One-Time-Password (OTP) are supported, TOTP (Time-based) and HOTP (HMAC-based). OTPs are generated by way of a Secret Key provided by the website.
Support for Form Authentication Using an OTP from a QR Code
In addition, we added support for configuring an OTP for form authentication from a QR Code. In cases where you don't have access to the information you need to complete the fields in the OTP Settings dialog shown above, you can generate them from a QR Code. Netsparker will then populate the fields in the OTP Settings dialog, retain this information and attempt to log in automatically.
