We offer two types of Discovery scanning: domain and network.
Domain Discovery is a service to examine your websites and determine the relationships between your domains. This is a complimentary service provided to all TrustedSite Security customers.
With this service, we examine the publicly available information on your domains. We do not attempt to find any security issues or perform requests that are different from a normal user viewing your site. It simply examines domains, links, forms, scripts, and parameters.
How does it work?
Our Domain Discovery is a surface scan that is significantly lighter than the typical SEO crawler. The majority of unique discovery data is statistically found within the surface layer of any domain. The scan will only examine the first few pages per domain and will only make a handful of requests per domain, on average.
The domain discovery begins with one or more domains that constitute starting locations and scope restrictions. We use the seed information to determine associated domains, as this increases the chances of finding previously unknown assets.
Unlike most domain discovery tools that are designed to search for IP addresses, our Domain Discovery searches for associate host names (AHNs) to give you better insight into your attack surface.
How long does it take?
A discovery scan typically ranges from a few minutes to a few hours.
Network discovery allows you to enter a network IP range for discovery of all accessible targets.
