Authentication Technologies Matrix

This topic contains the list of supported authentication technologies, certified versions of these technologies for VM and PC, and their ability to support auto discovery and vaults.

We've grouped the supported technologies as per the categories that you see on Scans > Authentication > New menu. Click each of the following links to see the support matrix details per category:

Operating Systems Authentication RecordsOperating Systems Authentication Records

We support Unix and Windows operating system authentication records. Our service uses these records to authenticate to your Windows and Unix hosts at scan time. Running authenticated scans gives you the most accurate results with fewer false positives.

Support Matrix for UNIX Authentication Record

You must create a UNIX authentication record for data collection and evaluation on the hosts running the following UNIX-compliant operating systems.

OS Authentication-based Technologies

We also support OS authentication-based technologies for which you can collect technology data by using the underlying OS technology without the need to create a technology authentication record. To see the list of supported technologies, click the following link: 

OS Authentication-based Instance TechnologiesOS Authentication-based Instance Technologies

You can collect technology data by using the underlying OS technology instance without creating authentication records. We support the following technologies based on OS authentication. We've also mentioned in the table whether a technology is supported in VM and PC modules or not.
