Software Composition Analysis (SCA) Node

This document is for:
Invicti Standard, Invicti Enterprise On-Demand

The Software Composition Analysis Node lists all third-party components detected by Invicti Shark (IAST) in your web application.

  • As Invicti Shark (IAST) has access to information about installed software packages, it can immediately identify all third-party components that you use for your web application.
  • During the scan, Invicti identifies these components in your web application and lists them in the Knowledge Base panel.
  • So, security and technical personnel can refer to the list to make sure that all third-party components are up to date and have no known vulnerabilities.

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

Running the Software Composition Analysis? See Software Composition Analysis with Invicti Shark (IAST).

Invicti forms Knowledge Base nodes on its findings. If the Software Composition Analysis (SCA) node is not listed, it means that Invicti Shark (IAST) did not detect any third-party components.
