Product Description

The National Vulnerability Database is the U.S. government repository of standards based vulnerability management data. 

The database consists of a list of known vulnerabilities for software product versions and operating systems versions.  These software product version and operating systems versions each have a unique Common Platform Enumeration identifier (a CPE string and a CPE ID).  This CPE identifier is used by security operations professionals. 

The aim of the NVD Linking functionality in BMC Discovery is to show CPE identities for discovered hosts and software instances.  This can then be used by security operations to identify dependencies associated to vulnerabilities identified using vulnerability management solutions.

  1. In the Installation section above, can you add a note that the Discovery services need to be restarted before the links will show up?

    Thanks.

  2. Will this integration work with the new NVD site? 

     

    Per the NVD site: The NVD website is planned to officially transition to the new format on Monday (3/27/2017)!



    1. Yes.  The pattern will work with the new site.  If you have any evidence it won't, please raise a bug
