Module: Arachni::Check::Auditor

Included in:
Base
Defined in:
lib/arachni/check/auditor.rb

Overview

Included by Base and provides helper audit methods to all checks.

There are 3 main types of audit and analysis techniques available:

It should be noted that actual analysis takes place at the element level.

It also provides:

#audit(payloads, opts = {}, &block) ⇒ Object

If a block has been provided it calls Element::Capabilities::Auditable#audit for every element, otherwise, it defaults to #audit_signature.

Uses #each_candidate_element to decide which elements to audit.

Returns:

  • (Object)
    • nil if no URL was provided.

Running checks can override this as they wish but at their own peril.

Parameters:

Returns:

#trace_taint(resource, options = {}, &block) ⇒ Object

Traces the taint in the given resource and passes each page to the block.

Parameters:

  • resource (Page, String, HTTP::Response)
