General Capability Questions

Product Accessibility <CR_2.4>

Provide a short description of how and where your capability is made available to your customers and the public (required):

TrustKeeper is an Internet-accessible information security compliance service, with a strong emphasis on PCI compliance assessment. Part of this service includes vulnerability scanning of client networks.
Mapping Questions

Map Currency Indication <CR_5.1>

Describe how and where your capability indicates the most recent CVE version used to create or update its mappings (required):

The TrustKeeper web interface includes an indicator on the "View Reports" page that includes the current version of the CVE that is being used in our system.

Figure 1

Map Currency Update Approach <CR_5.2>

Indicate how often you plan on updating the mappings to reflect new CVE versions and describe your approach to keeping reasonably current with CVE versions when mapping them to your repository (required):

Trustwave has developed a custom vulnerability and signature management tool which synchronizes with the CVE content on a daily basis. This tool analyzes the data from the CVE feed, identifies new and changed entries, and assigns a priority score to each entry so that it can be queued for manual review. The Signature Management System is reviewed every business day by Trustwave's security operations team, and relevant entries are then assigned to analysts for additional development (e.g., scanner test development, etc.).

Map Currency Update Time <CR_5.3>

Describe how and where you explain to your customers the timeframe they should expect an update of your capability's mappings to reflect a newly released CVE version (required):

Trustwave's use of CVE is included in the Scoring section of the client-facing scan reports.

Map Content Selection Criteria <CR_5.4>

Describe the criteria used for determining the relevance of a given CVE Identifier to your Capability (required):

Trustwave's Signature Management System scores each new CVE Identifier based on Common Product Enumeration (CPE) metadata and keyword rules which are applied to the basic CVE description. This automated scoring allows the Signature Management Team to prioritize the new vulnerabilities and their relevance to the TrustKeeper scanner.

Map Currency Update Mechanism <CR_5.4>

Describe the mechanism used for reviewing CVE for content changes (required):

Trustwave's Signature Management System includes a queue which lists all new and updated CVE identifiers. This queue is reviewed daily by Trustwave's security team. Changes to vulnerability are identified by changes in CVE metadata, including additional references (which may provide additional insight into a vulnerability) and changing CVSS scores.

Map Content Source <CR_5.5>

Describe the source of your CVE content, (i.e., we gather info from mailing lists, product change logs, software vendors' security bulletins...) (required):

The CVE content is primarily gathered from the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), via an automated daily feed. The rich XML in this feed contains extensive reference information, as well as CVSS scoring information, and Common Product Enumeration (CPE) information. Any other source can be added via manual entry into the Signature Management System.
