    There are different scan types, in-depth, context and smart. Could anyone explain what the differences are in detail and in what situation they should be used?

    Also could someone explain how the scan profiles work when a scan is scheduled from the RA Console in a policy? There is a user-defined (defined where?), current profile, my profile and then the in-depth, context and smart scan options. This is a bit confusing to me.

    Thanks.
