Learn how to collect vulnerability management system data. Jungwoo shows what vulnerability management system data looks like and how it can be stored in an XML format.
- [Instructor] Unlike the packet capture…and intrusion detection prevention systems…which support standards like PCAP,…vulnerability management systems and SIEMs…tend to have more proprietary output data formats.…This has a lot to do with the fact…that vulnerability assessment systems and SIEMs…are more so a data sink rather than a data source.…Being less likely to send their own data to another system…these systems are less obligated…to make their output data format…compatible with any known standards.…
For example, Nessus is a leading…commercial vulnerability assessment tool.…As a result of its vulnerability assessment…it generates a report detailing…the various weaknesses of a network and its constituents.…There is an export option in the Nessus web application.…When you export a Nessus report…it generates a .Nessus file…which is essentially an XML file…and contains tags to indicate…different parts of a typical Nessus report.…
The top level tags are policy and report.…The starting and ending policy tags…surround configuration information…
