Type-Specific Capability Questions

Tool Questions

15) 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):

In order to locate tasks (vulnerabilities) that include a CVE name, a user has to open the Test Policy Manager, and in the search box, type the name of the CVE he/she is looking for. In addition, he/she should choose the search filter called "CVE ID". When the search is performed, it will search the given CVE name in each vulnerability's CVE field.

16) 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 report includes a special CVE ID field, which represents the CVE name that is relevant for that vulnerability.

17) 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):

In order to locate all the tasks that have a CVE name assigned to them, a user has to open the Test Policy Manager, and in the search box, type one of the following strings: "CVE" or "CAN". In addition the user should choose the search filter called "CVE ID". When the search is performed, it will search the given CVE name (everything that starts with CVE or CAN) in all of the vulnerabilities.

18) 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):

This capability is currently unavailable in the product.

19) 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):

In order to locate tasks (vulnerabilities) that include a CVE name, a user has to open the Test Policy Manager, and in the search box, type the name of the CVE he/she is looking for. In addition, he/she should choose the search filter called "CVE ID". When the search is performed, it will search the given CVE name in each vulnerability's CVE field.

Once a specific vulnerability has been located, the user can check/un-check the checkbox next to it, in order to enable/disable that specific vulnerability.

20) 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):

If a user searches for a CVE name that cannot be performed, the search results will be empty.
