Define supported scan types

When a scanner supports a certain type of scan (such as URL, IP, file, or file hash value scanning), you must add them to the scanner record. Aside from pairing a scanner to a supported scan type, the scan type is responsible for providing the instantiation scripts that perform the scan for the given type. This is represented by two script fields, Integration factory script and Processor factory script, on the Supported scan type screen. Scan types for File, Hash, IP and URL are provided.
