General Capability Questions

1) 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):

After customers avail of the Trend Micro Vulnerability Assessment (TMVA) service, they are sent a CD with the appropriate license keys to get them started. The customer can simply call sales for additional software licenses, when the need arises.

An evaluation copy of the Trend Micro Vulnerability Assessment is also available from the following site:

http://www.trendmicro.com/en/products/eps/services/overview.htm#va

Mapping Questions

4) 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):

A weekly verification scheme is in place, which covers changes that may have been made in the CVE database. This is done by monitoring the new/modified CVE entries via the CVE mailing list. The CVE version currently in use is a part of the release notes.

5) 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 (recommended):

Both assessment pattern and information database are updated to add/modify a pattern and information database entry pertaining to a Critical vulnerability included in newly released security bulletins from Microsoft.

So as to ensure that entries contained in previous versions are up-to-date, a verification process done on a weekly basis is in place to replace outdated information with current ones.

6) 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 (recommended):

Trend Micro Control Manager, which contains the Trend Micro Vulnerability Assessment module, provides administrators the option to enable a notification feature that will inform them of newly released assessment patterns.

Documentation Questions

7) 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):

Trend Micro provides users a detailed explanation of CVE and CVE compatibility on the following page:

http://www.trendmicro.com/en/security/advisories/cve.htm

8) Documentation of Finding Elements Using CVE Names <CR_4.2>

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):

The report generated by TMVA whenever a vulnerability is detected on a machine includes a column that lists the corresponding CVE Name/Number for the reported vulnerability. Hence, documentation on how to find the corresponding CVE Name/Number for a vulnerability is unnecessary.

As for the online capability, the following URL will contain details on how the user could utilize the CVE Name/Number in searching for specific vulnerabilities:

http://www.trendmicro.com/en/security/advisories/cve.htm

9) 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):

The report generated by TMVA whenever a vulnerability is detected on a machine includes a column that lists the corresponding CVE Name/Number for the reported vulnerability. Hence, documentation on how to find the corresponding CVE Name/Number for a vulnerability is unnecessary.

As for the online capability, the following URL will contain details on how the user could utilize the CVE Name/Number in searching for specific vulnerabilities:

http://www.trendmicro.com/en/security/advisories/cve.htm

Candidate Support Questions

11) Candidates Versus Entries Indication <CR_6.1>

If CVE candidates are supported or used, explain how you indicate that candidates are not accepted CVE entries (required):

Candidates uses the CAN prefix, while accepted entries use the CVE prefix. In the following URL, users are asked to go to a specific CVE site for the details on how these two are different:

http://www.trendmicro.com/en/security/advisories/cve.htm

12) Candidates Versus Entries Explanation <CR_6.2>

If CVE candidates are supported or used, explain where and how the difference between candidates and entries is explained to your customers (recommended):

In the following URL, users are asked to go to a specific CVE site for the details on how these two are different:

http://www.trendmicro.com/en/security/advisories/cve.htm

13) Candidate to Entry Promotion <CR_6.3>

If CVE candidates are supported or used, explain your policy for changing candidates into entries within your capability and describe where and how this is communicated to your customers (recommended):

A weekly verification scheme is in place, which covers such changes as the upgrade of CVE candidates to official CVE entry status. Customers are not explicitly told of the changes, but the changes will be reflected on the new information database that will be released.

Again, Trend Micro Control Manager, which contains the Trend Micro Vulnerability Assessment module, comes with an option so that the administrator will be notified whenever there is a new vulnerability assessment pattern available.

14) Candidate and Entry Search Support <CR_6.4>

If CVE candidates are supported or used, explain where and how a customer can find the explanation of your search function's ability to look for candidates and entries by using just the YYYY-NNNN portion of the CVE names (recommended):

The following URL indicates the different CVE-related search tips the user could employ:

http://www.trendmicro.com/en/security/advisories/cve.htm

15) Search Support for Promoted Candidates <CR_6.5>

If CVE candidates are supported or used, explain where and how a customer can find the explanation of your search function's support for retrieving the CVE entry for a candidate that is no longer a candidate (recommended):

The following URL indicates the different CVE-related search tips the user could employ:

http://www.trendmicro.com/en/security/advisories/cve.htm

16) Candidate Mapping Currency Indication <CR_6.6>

If CVE candidates are supported or used, explain where and how you tell your users how up-to-date your candidate information is (recommended):

Both assessment pattern and information database comes with a version number, which are incremented with each update. Although there are several reasons for releasing a newer version, a need to update the vulnerability information database is one of the reasons why a newer version of both assessment pattern and information database is being released.

Type-Specific Capability Questions

Tool Questions

17) 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 next version of Trend Micro Vulnerability Assessment will include a feature that will list down all the vulnerabilities included in the current pattern, from which the user could choose the task(s) to implement. Although the tasks name will be using the corresponding MS-ID associated with the vulnerability, the corresponding CVE entry for each MS-ID will be properly indicated.
