This section explains how to configure and run scans manually in Burp Suite.
Burp Scanner enables you to launch scans in a variety of ways:
- Full crawl and audit. This is useful if you want to get information on a target's overall security posture.
- Scan a specific HTTP message. This is useful if you want to perform a focused scan on a few select items of HTTP traffic.
- Configure scans to run automatically as a live task. This is useful if you want to automatically scan traffic that passes through a particular tool or has a particular URL.
This section focuses on launching individual automated scans. For information on running scans via live tasks, see Live tasks.
