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):

As stand-alone IPS appliances, NIP2000 and NIP5000 series are publicly available for our customers to purchase. Our customers get CVE compatibility from the appliances out of the box.

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):

With each signature we release to our customer that has CVE mapping, our NIP appliances provide a hyperlink to the related CVE webpage.

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 (required):

We release updates at least once a week. The update can be introducing new signatures or updating the existing ones. We’ll maintain the newly introduced content including CVE mappings. Since there’re CVE references in signature description page our customer can get latest information on vulnerabilities.

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 content (signatures and related information) for NIP appliances is updated at least once a week. CVE mapping is also updated through a content update. Our customer can expect CVE mapping update on each content update we release for the NIP appliances. Also, instead of copying CVE contents into the appliance, we provide a hyperlink to the CVE page. So our mapping can automatically reflects to the latest CVE content.

Map Content Selection Criteria <CR_5.4>

Describe the criteria used for determining the relevance of a given CVE Identifier to your Capability (required):

When a signature is newly introduced or updated, our security team will search the CVE list. If there’s relevance to a CVE name, a reference to that CVE name will be attached to the signature description section.

Map Currency Update Mechanism <CR_5.4>

Describe the mechanism used for reviewing CVE for content changes (required):

Our security team reviews every single change to the content update package which includes CVE related information.

Map Content Source <CR_5.5>

Describe the source of your CVE content (required):

  • nvd.nist.gov
  • cve.mitre.org
