Exporting Scan Results to Fortinet FortiWeb

  • You must have completed a scan in Acunetix and created a WAF export file in FortiWeb format.

Import Vulnerability Export data into FortiWeb

  • Go to Web Vulnerability Scan > Scanner Integration > Scanner Integration

  • Set the Profile Type depending on whether the generated rules will apply to an Inline or Offline Protection Profile
  • Specify in the option Merge the Report to Existing Rule whether to create a new Protection Profile for the generated rules, or to add the generated rules to an already existing Protection Profile.

  • You will need to specify what action FortiWeb will take when it detects a user making a request that would trigger a vulnerability which the generated rules are defending against
  • Different actions can be set depending on whether the vulnerability is classified as high-level or medium-level or low-level
  • The "Alert" action allows the request and generates an email alert and/or a log message
