How to create a HAR file for your application security scan

Welcome to NeuraLegion. In this video, we’re going to show you how to create a ha file that can be used for an application security scan using NeuraLegion exploit. An HTTP archive file or HAR for short is a recording of all the requests and responses sent during an interaction between a user and the application you want to target for security scanning using the HA file, an exploit analyzes the attack surface of the target and automatically optimizes the selected security tests by loading the HAR file to exploit you ensure the best and most efficient coverage of the scan target. Let’s get started. We use Google Chrome in this example, but the steps for other browsers are similar. First, go to your browser. In the browser, open the developer tools panel. In most browsers, the keyboard shortcut is the F 12 key on Windows and Option command, IE on Mac, or you can select the developer Tools Command from the browser menu. With the developer tools open select the Network tab. Make sure that the preserve log and disable cache checkboxes are selected. Leave the developer tools pane open and go to your application. Interact with the application in the same way a normal user would. Remember to use all the parts and options of the application that you want to be covered by the security scan. This will define the scope of the test. While navigating through the application. You can see that all the requests are recorded in the developer tools. Once you complete the recording, right-click any of the requests in the developer tools and select Save all as ha. Save the file in your desired location so that you can select it when creating a new scan. That’s it. Thanks for watching and happy scanning with Nexploit from all of us at NeuraLegion.
