Nuclei is an open-source project that enables automated detection and exploitation of vulnerabilities in web applications.

Auditor Job Name: Nuclei Scan, Nuclei Infrastructure Auditor image: AppSec Portal Importer Name: Nuclei Scan

It supports a variety of protocols, including HTTP, DNS, and FTP, and allows users to create custom templates for scanning.

One interesting feature of Nuclei is its ability to automatically correlate multiple vulnerabilities into a single issue. This can save time and effort for security teams, as it eliminates the need to manually review and correlate multiple vulnerabilities across different scans.

Curl example

curl -X POST localhost/api/v1/scan/import/ -H "Authorization: Token a75bb26171cf391671e67b128bfc8ae1c779ff7b" -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data" -F "file=@./report-nuclei.json" -F "product_name=Product1" -F "product_type=Application" -F "scanner_name=Nuclei Scan" -F "branch=dev" -F ""

In this command, the following parameters are used:

  1. -X POST: specifies the HTTP method to be used (in this case, POST)

  2. -H "Authorization: Token <authorization_token>": specifies the authorization token obtained from AppSec Portal.

  3. -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data": specifies the content type of the request.

  4. -F "file=@<report_file_path>": specifies the path to the report file generated by the scanner.

  5. -F "product_name=<product_name>": specifies the name of the product being scanned.

  6. -F "product_type=<product_type>": specifies the type of the product being scanned.

  7. -F "scanner_name=<scanner_name>": specifies the name of the scanner used to generate the report (Nuclei Scan)

  8. -F "branch=<branch_name>": (optional) specifies the name of the branch in the source code repository (if applicable) This parameter is particularly useful when you want to associate the scan results with a specific branch in your repository. If not provided, the scan will be associated with the default branch

Asset information, if an auditor is used

  1. -F "repository=<repository SSH URL>": If your product is code in a repository enter the address of your repository in a specific format, for example:

  2. -F "docker_image=<registry address>": If your product is image enter the address of the registry where your product is located, for example:

  3. -F "domain=<domain>": If your product is web enter the domain name of your product, for example:

  4. -F "host=<host>": If your product is web enter the IP address of your product, for example:
