Every time we release a new official version of CodeScroll SNIPER, we update all the CWE mappings. Normally we release 2 or 3 new versions in a year and they are official periodic releases. We check all changes to the CWE compared with older version and update all CWE mappings in our tool. During the release process, independent Quality Assurance team has to involve the process for checking the currency of CWE version.

Type-Specific Capability Questions

Tool Questions

FINDING TASKS USING CWE IDENTIFIERS <CR_A.2.1>

Give detailed examples and explanations of how a user can locate tasks in the tool by looking for their associated CWE identifier (required):

Once CodeScroll SNIPER found a potential problem (we call it as “defect”), users can see the relationships between defects and CWE-IDs with following steps:

  1. Input CWE-ID on a search windows in "Defect-Explorer" view (see Figure 5. (1)).
  2. Check the associated defects with a given CWE-ID (see Figure 5. (2)).
  3. Select a defect in the list. Then you can see the related rule description in a "Description" view (Figure 4. (3)). You can also find a link to a detailed description about the related CWE rule in CWE homepage.

FINDING CWE IDENTIFIERS USING ELEMENTS IN REPORTS <CR_A.2.2>

Give detailed examples and explanations of how, for reports that identify individual security elements, the tool allows the user to determine the associated CWE identifier for the individual security elements in the report (required):

"Defect Explorer" view provides a list of defects. Users can find CWE-IDs associated to listed defects with following steps.

  1. Select "Rule" grouping options.
  2. Select "Show Detailed Label" tool bar button.
  3. Check the associated CWE-IDs.
