AppViewX’s smart discovery can help you perform a certificate discovery by two modes – Unauthenticated and Authenticated. In an Unauthenticated discovery, you can use an IP range, a subnet or an URL to identify the certificates available. But, to get a deeper understanding into each certificate and its various associations, the authenticated discovery scans each device securely (load balancer, firewall, web server, cloud or CA) to create an accurate picture of your certificate infrastructure. This discovery process can be customized with total pause-resume control to optimize network utilization. Post discovery, the certificates are processed using our rule engine to filter certificates that are most important to you.
