Authentication Verifier Settings

Authentication Verifier is a service application that verifies form based authentication configuration. This is an optional component. If you’re not scanning websites with form authentication, you don’t need to install it.

In the Authentication Verifier window, you can configure the authentication verifier and view the authentication verifier status. You can also copy the Access Token.

If you haven’t installed the Authentication Verifier with our setup wizard, you can configure these settings to install it after the installation process. Alternatively, you can configure these options if you decide to move the Authentication Verifier service to another machine or port number.

Authentication Verifier Settings is available in the Netsparker Enterprise On-Premises edition only.

For further information, see Overview of Settings in Netsparker Enterprise and Netsparker Editions.
