AcuSensor Network Prerequisites

AcuSensor makes use of the AcuSensor Bridge. For more information, refer to the AcuSensor Bridge documentation.

The AcuSensor agent will need to be installed in your web application. The following section describes how to deploy AcuSensor to a Java web application.

How to install the Java AcuSensor agent

To install the Java AcuSensor, you need to:

  1. Download the Java AcuSensor agent (AcuSensor.jar) from the Target’s Settings in the Acunetix UI.
    The J
    ava AcuSensor download includes the AcuSensor Token which, by default, is unique for each target. Unless the Token has been changed to be the same for all targets, you will need to download the Java AcuSensor for each Target separately.
  2. Save the downloaded Java AcuSensor to a location on your web server.
  3. Deploy the Java AcuSensor into your web server. This process differs depending on the web server. There are many possible configurations for a Java web server. The guides linked below look at the more common web server configuration possibilities.
