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):

Rsam’s Vulnerability Management, Assessment, and Threat Management solutions provide customers with central mechanisms to gather, management, and report on threats and vulnerabilities within the organization. Rsam’s Risk Analytics module utilizes this data to automatically assess, measure, and manage vulnerabilities. Rsam is integrated with common vulnerability sources, security intelligence feeds, inventory systems, and more.

Each of the elements listed above include CVE references. These references are used for basic association with CVE definitions, as well as to tie together disparate vulnerability sources. Customers can also declare any additional information on top of the CVE Identifiers to allow for custom-tailored handling of specific issues associated with specific CVE entries.

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):

CVE references are pulled from multiple sources.

  1. Data feeds (such as security intelligence feeds) that reference CVE will provide their CVE references directly.
  2. Vulnerability Scanners and related tools that have mapped to CVE automatically populate their references into the Rsam mappings.
  3. Rsam can point directly to the online CVE source hosted in the MITRE web site, or customers can download their own copy/instance and import directly into Rsam as a CVE reference library.

This information is then used for:

  1. Searching
  2. Reporting
  3. Linking Disparate Sources
  4. Automated Handling
  5. Risk Analytics

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):

The most common scenario is Rsam simply consumes the vulnerability mappings made by each of the customer’s vulnerability scanner/feed products.

Customers that choose to import the CVE library directly into Rsam can do this when, and as often as desired. Rsam’s OOTB mappings are updated throughout the year, but customers can also make and manage their own CVE mappings if desired.

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 newly available CVE content (required):

As often as the customer desires. Data can be refreshed manually or via automated import.

Map Content Selection Criteria <CR_5.4>

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

CVE Identifiers are taken from sources that are the authoritative source of how CVE maps to their own product, and which CVE Identifiers are relevant. CVEs are populated from such sources automatically or directly by customers as needed.

Map Currency Update Mechanism <CR_5.4>

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

Rsam’s import interface has a built-in capability of auto-detecting content changes. This includes mapping to the datasource via one or more identifiers, and then comparing the other fields against the current data.

Map Content Source <CR_5.5>

Describe the source of your CVE content (required):

http://cve.mitre.org/cve/
