Network Interface Cards on Scanners

 

In JSA Vulnerability Manager scanning is not dependent on the network interface cards (NICs) that are configured on the scanner appliance.

You can configure many NICs, although 4-5 is a typical configuration. JSA Vulnerability Manager uses standard TCP/IP protocols to scan any device that has an IP address. If multiple NICs are defined, scanning follows the standard networking configuration on an appliance.

If the target assets that you're scanning are in different networks, configure individual NICs to connect to the different networks.

This segmentation of the networks by using NICs makes it possible for the scanner to connect directly to different networks. For example, one Ethernet interface might be configured to connect to the 10.100.85.0/24 network and a second Ethernet interface might be configured to connect to the 192.168.0.0/24 network.
