Security Seal Details
Once a security seal has been created, WAS begin the process of validating the security seal using historical scan data for the associated Web Application. If you historical scan data is not found, the seal is put in a pending state until a scan has completed.
General Information for the Web App Seal includes a generated code snippet. The Code snippet can be copied and applied to a third party website to display the Security Seal badge. The right panel displays a preview of the seal badge and the last scan results that determine the current status of the seal.
