Using The VisibleThread Bookmarklet To Analyze Pages Behind A Firewall or authentication gateway

The VisibleThread bookmarklet can be used to analyze web pages that might not normally be accessible to VisibleThread Web. These pages might include pages from intranet sites or pages that are protected by an authentication gateway.

The bookmarklet is like a browser plugin. The idea is that you go to the web page in your browser (that you want to scan) and then launch the bookmarklet to scan the current page. The scan results show up inside VisibleThread Web.

1. Login into VT Web

2. Click "+Get Bookmarklet"

To view the results of the scan,  navigate back to VT Web (
