We recommend you verify authentication was successful for hosts that you've scanned. Be sure to resolve authentication failures before the next scan.
Our Authentication Report tells you the pass/fail status for hosts that you've scanned. If authentication failed on a host we tell you the cause so you can resolve the issue.
How do I report on hosts scanned for vulnerabilities?
Go to VM/VMDR > Reports and select New > Authentication Report and run the report.
How do I report on hosts scanned for compliance?
Go to PC > Reports and select New > Compliance Report > Authentication Report and run the report. Tip - If host authentication fails during a compliance scan we do not perform any control evaluation for the host.
For each scan we report authentication status in the Appendix section of the scan results. You'll see hosts that 1) passed authentication, 2) failed authentication, and 3) passed authentication but the login account had insufficient privileges.
Want to investigate further? You can create vulnerability scan reports that include authentication status QIDs (Information Gathered). Learn more
