Options Passive Scan Tags screen

This screen allows you to configure the tags that are added by the passive scanner. You can add, modify and remove the tags via the appropriate buttons.

Tag Interpolation

In order to allow some flexibility in Tag creation and content it is possible for the user to specify a regular expression with capturing groups which will be used to replace the group identifiers (ex: $1) in the resulting tag.

For example, a tag could be defined as follows:

Field Value Note
Name: Test
Response Body Regex: (\d{3}) Find strings of 3 numbers, using a capturing group (round brackets).

Result: When 3 digit strings are passively identified in response body content (the regex matches) the messages will be tagged such as “123-SOMETAG”, “345-SOMETAG”, etc.
