SCAP Alerts Report (Severity)

by Josef Weiss
April 2, 2015

The Security Content Automation Protocol, or SCAP, is a method for using specific standards to enable automated vulnerability management, measurement, and policy compliance evaluation (e.g., FISMA compliance). The National Vulnerability Database (NVD) hosts the U.S. government content repository for SCAP.

SCAP assigns a Severity Code to each system IA security weakness to indicate the risk level associated with the IA security weakness and the urgency with which the corrective action must be completed.

This report presents the analyst with vulnerability information within the environment. Data is presented on the number of SCAP Severity vulnerability concerns, networks that have SCAP vulnerability results, when audits have been performed, IP summary, and a SCAP vulnerability summary with failing items.

The report is available in the Tenable.sc Feed, a comprehensive collection of dashboards, reports, assurance report cards and assets. The report can be easily located in the Tenable.sc Feed under the category Compliance & Configuration Assessment. The report requirements are:

  • Tenable.sc 4.7.0
  • Nessus 8.4.0

Tenable.sc Continuous View (Tenable.sc CV) allows for the most comprehensive and integrated view of network health. Tenable.sc CV provides a unique combination of detection, reporting, and pattern recognition utilizing industry recognized algorithms and models. Tenable.sc CV also enables the analyst to react to advanced threats, zero-day vulnerabilities, and new forms of regulatory compliance.

The report contains the following chapters:

  • Audit Summary - This chapter displays an indication of SCAP Nessus scans present over the last 7, 30, or more than 30 days. A bar chart is displayed with vulnerability severity/totals by Class C address, and an IP Summary that presents pass/fail results.
  • Severity High - This chapter displays the failed compliance results for SCAP Severity Level High. SCAP Severity Levels are assigned to specific vulnerabilities to indicate the associated risk level. The Severity Level can assist in determining the urgency with which the corrective action must be completed. The Severity High table provides details if vulnerability results exist for the specified Severity level. This is accomplished utilizing the Vulnerability Summary – IP Detail tool, and text filters.
  • Severity Medium - This chapter displays the failed compliance results for SCAP Severity Level Medium. SCAP Severity Levels are assigned to specific vulnerabilities to indicate the associated risk level. The Severity Level can assist in determining the urgency with which the corrective action must be completed. The Severity Medium table provides details if vulnerability results exist for the specified Severity level. This is accomplished utilizing the Vulnerability Summary – IP Detail tool and text filters.
  • Severity Low - This chapter displays the failed compliance results for SCAP Severity Level Low. SCAP Severity Levels are assigned to specific vulnerabilities to indicate the associated risk level. The Severity Level can assist in determining the urgency with which the corrective action must be completed. The Severity Low table provides details if vulnerability results exist for the specified Severity level. This is accomplished utilizing the Vulnerability Summary – IP Detail tool and text filters.
