What is an Intruder target?

Broadly speaking, we define targets as one of the following:

  • An external IP address

  • A domain

  • A sub-domain

  • An internal device that supports Windows, Linux or MacOs.

What do the options mean on the 'add target' modal?

How you choose to add your target will affect what we scan and the license we use.


What can I add here?

What license does it require?

External infrastructure

  • External IP address

  • Sub-domain

Infrastructure license

Internal target

  • Internal device running Windows

  • Internal device running MacOS

  • Internal device running Linux

Infrastructure license

External web applications

  • External IP address

Cloud asset sync

  • Connect your AWS account to pull through EC2 IPs and Route53 domains

  • Connect your GCP account to pull through external IPs and Cloud DNS

  • Connect your Azure account to pull through external facing IPs and Domain Names

Depends on the assets we pull through and what/how you want to scan them.

How does licensing work?

Great question – we have just the article to help answer it.

Can I edit a target once added?

No, unfortunately not. If you wish to change a target (i.e. correct a typo, or update the domain), you need to add it as a new target via the targets page.

Where can I find pricing?
