Invicti Shark Node

The Shark Node lists all the information reported by Invicti Shark (IAST) for your web application.

  • You can run interactive security testing (IAST) with Invicti Shark in your web application in order to confirm more vulnerabilities and further minimize false positives.
  • Additionally, using Shark enables Invicti to provide additional information from the back-end while scanning your web application.

Once the scan is completed, all components are listed under the Shark node in the Knowledge Base. You can access the same information in the Knowledge Base Report and Knowledge Base Tab.

This article explains how to view the Shark node.

Invicti forms Knowledge Base nodes on its findings. If the Shark node is not listed, it means that Invicti did not detect any.
