Credentialed vs. Non-Credentialed

Credentialed scan gives more information, because you are able to access more information and configuration detailed about a system when logged in with valid privileged credentials. 

Non-Credentialed scan could be used in black box or blind test when you have no knowledge of system accounts.

 

Credentialed is privileges, like a normal user. 

 

Non-Credentialed no privileges, like an outsider.
