Fig. 1

The customer then types in the YYYY-NNNN portion of the name and will see the above results. From there the customer sees the category (ours), the Description of the vulnerability, our estimated risk, instructions on fixing it, links to the patch or vendor and links to both the CVE and BugTraq entries.

19) Getting a List of CVE Names Associated with Tasks <CR_A.2.4>

Give detailed examples and explanations of how a user can obtain a listing of all of the CVE names that are associated with the tool's tasks (recommended):

Within the product the customer selects the Audit tab and then the Audits sub-tab (or Menu->Tools->Audit Groups). And then select the CVE sub-tab. The customer will see this screen with all available CVE names and their descriptions:

Alternatively, the customer could follow the steps in 17 and enter the problem, such as DCOM and would be presented with a list of audits, each one containing the CVE name and link in addition to the other required information. As below:

20) Selecting Tasks with a List of CVE Names <CR_A.2.5>

Describe the steps and format that a user would use to select a set of tasks by providing a file with a list of CVE names (recommended):

As in 19 above, the customer can select the desired tasks from the list of CVE names or search for each required CVE name and select the associated task from there (17).

21) Selecting Tasks Using Individual CVE Names <CR_A.2.6>

Describe the steps that a user would follow to browse, select, and deselect a set of tasks for the tool by using individual CVE names (recommended):

Follow the steps in 19 and select/deselect the desired CVE tasks.

22) Non-Support Notification for a Requested CVE Name <CR_A.2.7>

Provide a description of how the tool notifies the user that task associated to a selected CVE name cannot be performed (recommended):

As a scanner, the task is an audit, which is always performed. If access to perform an audit is not available, the user is notified in the product scan log. Otherwise the scan is performed and the user is notified of any problems.
Media Questions

31) Electronic Document Format Info <CR_B.3.1>

Provide details about the different electronic document formats that you provide and describe how they can be searched for specific CVE-related text (required):

There is not a separate document for CVE-related text. The CVE names and links are available in all tasks and reports. In addition, there is a complete list (see figure in 19) of the CVE names and descriptions in the product. The audit file used by the product is either an Access database (4.x) or an XML file (5.x) that can also be searched with a text editor.

If one of the capability's standard electronic documents only lists security elements by their short names or titles provide example documents that demonstrate how the associated CVE names are listed for each individual security element (required):

CVE names are listed for each element in the interface and reports as shown in 17, 18, and 19. An individual audit (see 19) is shown here:

33) Electronic Document Element to CVE Name Mapping <CR_B.3.3>

Provide example documents that demonstrate the mapping from the capability's individual elements to the respective CVE name(s) (recommended):

The CVE names and links are available in all tasks and reports. See 19 and 32.
Graphical User Interface (GUI)

34) Finding Elements Using CVE Names Through the GUI <CR_B.4.1>

Give detailed examples and explanations of how the GUI provides a "find" or "search" function for the user to identify your capability's elements by looking for their associated CVE name(s) (required):

Within the product the customer selects the Audit tab and then the Audits sub-tab (or Menu->Tools->Audit Groups). At that point the customer will be presented with this screen:

The customer then types in the YYYY-NNNN portion of the name and will see the above results. From there the customer sees the category (ours), the Description of the vulnerability, our estimated risk, instructions on fixing it, links to the patch or vendor and links to both the CVE and BugTraq entries.

35) GUI Element to CVE Name Mapping <CR_B.4.2>

Briefly describe how the associated CVE names are listed for the individual security elements or discuss how the user can use the mapping between CVE entries and the capability's elements, also describe the format of the mapping (required):

In all reports and audits the customer will see the Description of the vulnerability, our estimated risk, instructions on fixing it, links to the patch or vendor and links to both the CVE and BugTraq entries.

36) GUI Export Electronic Document Format Info <CR_B.4.3>

Provide details about the different electronic document formats that you provide for exporting or accessing CVE-related data and describe how they can be searched for specific CVE-related text (recommended):
