Video 1 of 8: An introduction to ScanMyPage

Transcript:

Hello.  Thank you for your interest in ScanMyPage.
 

ScanMyPage is a cloud-based website monitoring service. It will periodically monitor web pages as if it is a real external visitor. It will also analyze web pages based on how it looks on the web browser.
 

With artificial intelligence, it will be able to monitor dynamic web pages and learn how web pages change.


In this demo video:

  • We will walk through the ScanMyPage web portal on how to set it up to monitor a dynamic web page.

  • Also, we will show you how to manage webpage tamper alerts as well as legitimate updates.

Video 4 of 8: Setting up your ScanMyPage monitoring

Transcript:

 

Web page Monitoring Setup:
Now we are ready to set up ScanMyPage to monitor a web page.

The sample web page that we are going to monitor is a dynamic page with a random top banner and a timestamp which make the web page look a bit different for every visit as shown.

  • To monitor this web page, click on "Web Pages" on the side panel on the left of the screen.

  • Click on "Create one now" and you will see a popup dialog.

  • Firstly, enter the Web Page Name, which is a friendly label for this page. I shall call it "ScanMyPage Demo" here.

  • Next, enter the URL of the web page to be monitored.

  • Then, enter the email address of the recipient of alerts.

  • Please note that this email address does not need to be the same as the ScanMyPage login email address.

  • Next, select the scanning interval, which ranges from 30 minutes to 24 hours.  For the purpose of this demo, I would select 30 minutes.

  • After that, select the training period.  This is the number of scans to be made by ScanMyPage to learn about your web page, to determine the maximum change threshold of normal acceptable variation of the dynamic web page.

  • Selecting 24 scans with a scanning interval of 30 minutes would mean the training period would take a total of 12 hours.

  • Within the training period, all changes made to the web page are considered acceptable and would not trigger any alert.

  • For threshold, we shall leave its value at zero for now, and let the training determine its value.

  • We could adjust this value later to make the tamper detection either more sensitive or less sensitive to decreasing or increasing the threshold value.

  • Next, specify the "Page Load Delay" value.  This is the delay in seconds after the web page has been loaded before ScanMyPage takes a snapshot of the page.  Web pages that take a longer time to fully render itself would require a higher delay value.  Leave it at auto if you would like the delay to be random.

  • Finally, select the View Size.  This defines the shape of the snapshot window.  For wide and short pages, we recommend "Landscape" whereas, for long pages, we recommend Portrait.

  • Click on "Save" to submit the monitoring configuration.

  • You would now see a new monitoring entry added to the "Web Pages" list.

  • Please note that it might take some time before the new monitoring entry is finalized.

Web page Monitoring Operation:

  • After the training period has ended, you will notice that the status indicators have changed from yellow to green, showing that the web page is now being monitored and in good condition.

  • From this point onwards, there is no further configuration required.

  • ScanMyPage would send you an email alert if it detects a change that is beyond its learned change threshold.

  • You may edit the configuration by clicking on the web page icon or the link shown here

 

Video 6 of 8: ScanMyPage web page snapshots

Transcript:

Taking snapshots:

  • To view the snapshots of the web page taken during each scan, click on "Snapshots".

  • You will see the scan history showing the time and status of each scan.

  • Scrolling down, you will see the initial training scans that have taken place after the initial set up.

  • The HTML status shows whether the HTML code of the web page has been changed.

  • Whereas the Visual status shows whether the visual appearance of the web page has been changed beyond the preset threshold.

  • To view what has been captured during a particular scan, click on the “view snapshot icon”.

  • This was a snapshot taken during this particular scan.

 

Video 7 of 8: Tampering alert testing

Transcript:

 

Tamper and alert testing:

  • Let's make a change to the monitored web page to simulate an unauthorized web page tampering.

  • Now the web page looks different.

  • You should receive an email alert regarding this change after the next web page scan.

  • You can also manually request an immediate scan by clicking on the "scan now" button.

  • After the next scan, you will receive an email alert. 

  • The email alert would inform you about the URL of the web page that has changed, together with the before and after snapshots of the web page.

  • Let's revert the web page to its original version.

  • And we can wait for the next scan or we can trigger a manual scan as before. 

  • You will notice that the status of the web page has changed back to green.

  • Let’s take a look at the snapshots, it is now “good” again. 

 

Video 8 of 8: Updating your ScanMyPage web page scans

Transcript:

Updating your ScanMyPage web page scans:

  • Let's make a change to update the web page to its new version.

  • The web page has been updated to the new version.

  • And we can trigger the manual scan to immediately detect the change.

  • We should wait for a short while for the scan to take place, and we can always use the refresh button to check the status. The update has been detected as “Bad”.

  • Let’s go to snapshots. And indeed, the new update has captured a change.

  • Then, let’s accept this as a new change by clicking on the “Reset baseline” icon. 

  • From now onwards, this new updated version of the webpage will be considered as “Good”.
