Configuring Client Certificate Authentication in Netsparker Standard

Netsparker Standard supports the Client Certificate Authentication mechanism, enabling you to configure scans for websites that require Client Certificate authentication.

It is not possible to configure both Client Certificate Authentication and Smart Card Authentication at the same time.
