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):

SAINT customers can find CVE information in SAINTbox's Analysis reports, in SAINTbox's vulnerability tutorials, and in a SAINT/CVE cross-reference table which is included in the product.
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 SAINT/CVE cross-reference table included in the product and the web site states the CVE version number with which SAINTbox is compatible.

Map Currency Update Approach <CR_5.2>

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

Mappings are updated twice every week if new candidate CVEs or a new CVE version is available. New CVE lists are downloaded and compared with current lists, and new entries are added to the mapping if relevant to SAINTbox.

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):

The SAINT Corporation web site, user guide and knowledgebase articles that product updates are available twice a week. These updates include CVE updates.
Documentation Questions

CVE and Compatibility Documentation<CR_4.1>

Provide a copy, or directions to its location, of where your documentation describes CVE and CVE compatibility for your customers (required):

See the SAINT User Guide, which is included with the product is also available on the website at http://www.saintcorporation.com/resources/documentation/help/saint8_help/saint_help.html

See Glossary of Terms.

Provide a copy, or directions to its location, of where your documentation describes the specific details of how your customers can use CVE names to find the individual security elements within your capability’s repository (required):

http://www.saintcorporation.com/resources/documentation/help/saint8_help/saint_help.html

See User Guide - Using SAINT - Analysis and Reporting sections.

See Glossary of Terms.

Documentation of Finding CVE Names Using Elements <CR_4.3>

Provide a copy, or directions to its location, of where your documentation describes the process a user would follow to find the CVE names associated with individual security elements within your capability’s repository (required):

http://www.saintcorporation.com/resources/documentation/help/saint8_help/saint_help.html

See User Guide - Using SAINT - Analysis and Reporting sections

Documentation Indexing of CVE-Related Material <CR_4.4>

If your documentation includes an index, provide a copy of the items and resources that you have listed under "CVE" in your index. Alternately, provide directions to where these "CVE" items are posted on your web site (recommended):

Login to the Customer portal - mySAINT - at http://www.saintcorporation.com/

Click on Vulnerabilities link under Vulns and Exploits section.

CVEs are organized by calendar year. Scroll alphabetically down to CVE.

Type-Specific Capability Questions

 

Tool Questions

Finding Tasks Using CVE Names <CR_A.2.1>

Give detailed examples and explanations of how a user can locate tasks in the tool by looking for their associated CVE name (required):

The SAINT/CVE cross-reference list includes a column which maps the CVE name to the associated SAINT vulnerability check ID. The explanation is included at the top of the cross-reference list.

For example, a user who searches the table for CVE-1999-0002 will discover that this vulnerability is detected by the rpc_mountd check.

Finding CVE Names Using Elements in Reports <CR_A.2.2>

Give detailed examples and explanations of how, for reports that identify individual security elements, the tool allows the user to determine the associated CVE names for the individual security elements in the report (required):

The CVE name is listed beside every reported vulnerability.

In SAINTbox's basic HTML reporting, each vulnerability appears beside a dot like this:

* [TOP-20] host1 - possible vulnerability in mountd (CVE-1999-0002)

In reports generated by SAINTwriter, there is a column in the table in the Technical Overview report for CVE numbers, and a CVE line under each vulnerability in the Technical Details report.

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):

On the custom scan level set-up screen, every vulnerability check is hyperlinked to an information page which includes a list of related CVE entries.

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):

For each CVE name, the user would check the SAINT/CVE cross-reference list for the associated SAINTbox checks. The user would then create a custom scan level and select each of the associated SAINTbox checks.
Media Questions

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):

We provide both HTML and PDF documentation, and scan output is available as HTML, text, CSV, PDF, or XML. Any of these formats can be searched using a browser, reader or editor.

Electronic Document Listing of CVE Names <CR_B.3.2>

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):

SAINTbox internally identifies vulnerabilities by their vulnerability check IDs.

These IDs are cross-referenced with CVE names in the SAINT/CVE cross-reference table: http://www.saintcorporation.com/resources/documentation/help/saint8_help/saint_help.html

See Glossary of Terms.

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):

http://www.saintcorporation.com/cgi-bin/doc.pl?document=cve_2014

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):

A user can find SAINTbox's vulnerability categories by CVE name by:

CVEs are organized by calendar year and the browser's search functions.

The browser will return a line containing the CVE name, description, SAINT category, and SAINT vulnerability check ID.

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):

There are three ways that CVE names are listed for security elements: in report output, in vulnerability tutorials, and in the SAINT/CVE cross-reference. The report output lists vulnerabilities in either tabular or paragraph format. The vulnerability tutorials discuss vulnerabilities in paragraphs, with related CVE names listed above paragraphs. The cross-reference page is in tabular format.

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):

SAINT reporting provides output in HTML, text, CSV, PDF or XML format, with CVE names as one of the fields in the tables. Each of these formats can be searched using a browser or text editor. The CSV and XML formats can be exported to a database that also can be used for searching.
