Internal Proxy

An Internal Proxy is used to facilitate the manual crawling feature. In cases where automatic crawling does not work as expected, or when users want to run a more controlled scan, this proxy should be started.

In the Internal Proxy tab in Netsparker Standard, you can register as the System Proxy and allow Remote Connections. You can also use and export the Custom Root Certificate.

  • If it is set as System Proxy, all programs (browsers, for example) that are set to use the system proxy will use Netsparker as a proxy.
  • If it is not set as System Proxy, programs should be configured specifically to use Netsparker proxy.

For intercepting SSL/TLS traffic, a Root Certificate should be used.
