Hi,

scanning what with what? If you are referring to nmap, stick to non-root
scanning for the time being :-)

Hi:

I am a newbie to security and scanning. Here is my question:

Do you generally need root credentials in order for the scan to
produce detailed results? When I run a scan without root credentials,
it comes up very little info. However, when I supply
root credentials, I get several useful reports. It appears that the
scanner detects the OS version and other s/w component versions only
if it is provided root access.

Thanks
