enterprise edition passive scanning vs professional edition passive edition

Hi i have started using enterprise edition. Curious how enterprise edition runs passive scan as compared to professional edition. What kind of requests will be made by enterprise edition as there will not be any set of base requests that will be available at the start? will it use other scan configuration internally?

Hi Umer, Can you provide some more detail on your question, please? The passive scan configuration is available in Enterprise too but this is not in the context of a live task (like it is in Burp Pro). In Burp Pro, the traffic coming in from the proxy is analyzed with the passive scan checks. In Enterprise, you can use the 'Audit checks - passive' scan configuration but this is based on your seed URL and any Included/Excluded URLs. If you are looking for a similar live task function in Enterprise that uses a proxy like Burp Pro then this is not available, unfortunately.
