Describe how and where your capability indicates the most recent CWE content used to create or update its mappings (required):

Kiuwan includes the Kiuwan and CWE page in its documentation, where it is clearly stated the CWE version used for the latest mapping.

Map Currency Update Approach <CR_6.2>

Indicate how often you plan on updating the mappings to reflect the current CWE content and describe your approach to keeping reasonably current with the CWE content when mapping them to your repository (recommended):

As stated in the Kiuwan and CWE documentation page, Kiuwan team does a review and applies the required changes to the CWE mappings before every release (roughly every 3 months) to reflect the latest possible CWE version.

MAP CURRENCY UPDATE TIME <CR_6.3>

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 CWE content (required):

Again, all the information regarding the CWE is in the Kiuwan and CWE documentation page. The timing depends on the Kiuwan major release calendar (once a year minimum).

Documentation Questions

CWE AND COMPATIBILITY DOCUMENTATION <CR_5.1>

Provide a copy, or directions to its location, of where your documentation describes CWE and CWE compatibility for your customers (required):

In the Kiuwan and CWE documentation page you can see Kiuwan’s policy for compatibility and updates.

In the application itself, the vulnerability report clearly states the mapping with the correspondent CWE with every vulnerability found. In every case the report includes a link to the CWE site with the detailed information.

DOCUMENTATION OF FINDING ELEMENTS USING CWE IDENTIFIERS <CR_5.2>

Provide a copy, or directions to its location, of where your documentation describes the specific details of how your customers can use CWE identifiers to find the individual security elements within your capability’s repository (required):

There are 2 places in Kiuwan where users can use CWE identifiers to find security elements:

  • Models Management. This is where users define the software models to use when analyzing applications. Here there are over 3,000 rules that detect defects and vulnerabilities, 623 of which are directly related to security vulnerabilities, these are the security elements in Kiuwan’s repository. Among other filtering and search criteria, users can use the CWE identifier to find rules and use them in their models. Models Management documentation page.
  • Vulnerabilities report. For every analysis executed in Kiuwan, users have all the details about the vulnerabilities found in the Vulnerabilities report. Here users can easily filter and search the application results by CWE identifier. Since the CWE identifier is explicitly displayed as a column in the results the complete list can be sorted by CWE identifier as well. Vulnerabilities documentation page.

DOCUMENTATION OF FINDING CWE IDENTIFIERS USING ELEMENTS <CR_5.3>

Provide a copy, or directions to its location, of where your documentation describes the process a user would follow to find the CWE identifiers associated with individual security elements within your capability’s repository (required):

Again, there are 2 places in Kiuwan where users can use security elements and their association with CWE identifiers:

  • Models Management. This is where users define the software models to use when analyzing applications. Here there are over 3,000 rules that detect defects and vulnerabilities, 623 of which are directly related to security vulnerabilities, these are the security elements in Kiuwan’s repository. Every security element has one or more tags specifying the mapping with one or more CWE identifiers. Models Management documentation page.
  • Vulnerabilities report. For every analysis executed in Kiuwan, users have all the details about the vulnerabilities found in the Vulnerabilities report. Here the CWE identifier associated with every security element (vulnerability found)is explicitly displayed as a column in the results. The complete list can be sorted by CWE identifier. Additionally the displayed description of every security element displays the tags associated to it including the ones for the associated CWE identifiers. Vulnerabilities documentation page.

DOCUMENTATION INDEXING OF CWE-RELATED MATERIAL <CR_5.4>

If your documentation includes an index, provide a copy of the items and resources that you have listed under "CWE" in your index. Alternately, provide directions to where these "CWE" items are posted on your web site (recommended):

The afore mentioned Kiuwan and CWE documentation page contains all the CWE information, and links to other pages mentioning CWE.

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):

In this context, tasks in Kiuwan are each and every rule (check) that is executed when analyzing applications and produce defects and vulnerabilities (security elements).

Rules are grouped in software models. Kiuwan’s Model Management allows users to find rules using CWE identifiers to search and select them to include them in the different models. These models are later used to analyze applications applying the rules in them.

CR_A.2.1

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):

In the vulnerabilities report, the user can see all the vulnerabilities found in their applications. If a given vulnerability has an associated CWE identifier mapping, the users can see it immediately in the CWE column in the results. Additionally, in the description of the vulnerability they see the associated CWE identifiers as tags.

CR_A.2.2

GETTING A LIST OF CLAIMED CWE IDENTIFIER COVERAGE <CR_A.2.3>

Give detailed examples and explanations of how a user can obtain a listing of all of the CWE identifiers that the owner claims the tool is effective at locating in software (required):

Kiuwan has a rule repository with over 3,000 rules available for the users to build the models they used to analyze applications. To see the list of CWE identifier coverage, the users just have to go to Models Management > Rules Management and filter the list by the CWE tag and only the rules with an associated CWE identifier will be displayed.

USING CCR TO PROVIDE CLAIMED CWE IDENTIFIER COVERAGE <CR_A.2.4>

Give a detailed explanation of how a user can find the Coverage Claim Representation (CCR) XML document with all of the CWE Identifiers that the owner claims the tool is effective at locating in software (recommended):
