AppScan Detailed System Requirements
For your convenience, the tabs below identify the supported releases of IBM Security AppScan Standard from which you can select detailed system requirement reports for different contexts (by Operating System, by component). Note that clicking a link will always generate a new, up-to-date report.
Note: AppScan Standard runs on Windows operating systems only. If glass box scanning is used, the glass box agent must be installed on the tested application’s server (Java and .NET platforms are supported). The system requirements listed for other (non-Windows) systems apply only to the server on which this glass box agent is installed.
