My Vulnerability Assessment Technology Paper Publishes!

by Anton Chuvakin  |  March 21, 2012  |  17 Comments

If you are done reading  my “Vulnerability and Security Configuration Assessment Solutions Comparison”, time to start on the next opus grandioso. My “Vulnerability Management Practices and Vulnerability Assessment Technology” just published. If the first one was about market trends and vendors, this one is a deep-dive into today’s vulnerability assessment (VA) technology. It covers  how this technology faces the challenges of today’s security (such as vulnerability and security-relevant configuration assessment of emerging IT environments, etc), how it is architected and – in GREAT depth – how the data is analyzed and prioritized (a much more expanded version of this). The paper also contains a detailed  list of VA tool capabilities, that you can use for your tool comparisons.

So, without further ado, please welcome “Vulnerability Management Practices and Vulnerability Assessment Technology” in its entire 56 page glory Smile

Abstract follows below:

“Vulnerability assessment (VA) plays a critical role in enterprise vulnerability management (VM). Tools are only now being expanded to cover in-depth security configuration assessment (SCA), large-scale vulnerability prioritization, and new cloud, mobile, and virtualization environments. This document focuses on today’s VA technology challenges and practices in complex, large-scale IT environments.”

    Hi

    I read the last installement so i’ll be sure to read this new one :) I work in web development and we are starting to migrate some of our sites over to “cloud pods” to take some weight off of our own backs. I am following your blog closely as I’m esp. interested in (and in charge of!) the security angle of what we are doing.
