Secutor Magnus authentication using Active Directory

Postby danmandle » Tue Mar 04, 2008 2:39 pm

Is it possible to set up an admin account through AD to have secutor magnus authenticate against or does it require a local admin account?

Yes. AD admin accounts (as well as local admin accounts) are supported for both agent-based and agentless assessments from Secutor Magnus.

Yes. Normal account simply refers to a user account. In the case of an AD account, it is best to add the domain name followed by the user name (for example, "TEST\Magnus_Admin" where test is the AD domain name and "Magnus User" is the user name.
