Provide a short description of how and where your capability is made available to your customers and the public (required):

You can find the introduction of the product "CodeCheck" on webpage: https://support.huaweicloud.com/productdesc-codecheck/devcloud_pdtd_30001.html

"CodeCheck" will provide code static analysis service for developer to find potential security vulnerabilities in the source code. And you can register a developer account on the website: https://devcloud.cn-north-4.huaweicloud.com/codechecknew.

During CWE evaluation process, you can follow the following step to verify the service provided by "CodeCheck". We already crate a testing account for evaluation purpose.

You can follow the process to access the service.

1. Got to the website: https://devcloud.cn-north-4.huaweicloud.com/codechecknew , you will get the follow sign in page. You can choose display language on the right-top of the page.

2. User can base their account type to change the different login method.

3. After login, the page will be as below.

In this page, you can finish normal process for code static analysis:

  • "Rule Set": we provide several default rule set for C、C++、 java、 javascript. Each rule set include the default rules for common checking. You can modify the rule set to select or deselect the rules for the rule set. The rule set will associate with scan task when you create the scan task.
  • "Rule": you can check the detail information of the rules.
  • "Task": Create scan task or check task result. You can create a scan task for identified source and choose the scan rule set. After scan, you will get the scan result for this project.

Basic introduce:

  • Rule Set

Click "RuleSet" to get rule set information. Now we have several default rule set for C/C++/Java/Javascript.

You can click the rule set name to get the rule list of the rule set, as below page.

In this page, you can search by CWE id or export the rules as excel list as below page, you can find the rules detail and related CWE id.

For the CWE Id web linked path in the system display will link to the: https://cwe.mitre.org/data/definitions/[CWE ID].html

Currently, we are using CWE4.7 to map with our rules. And we noticed CWE 4.8 just released on June 2022, we are checking the difference between these two version.

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):

We start to map our rules to CWE since CWE 4.4 and we follow each new CWE version, especially focus on the new created CWE Id, expired CWE Id and the updated content/description/relation of CWE. We check those information on: https://cwe.mitre.org/data/reports/diff_reports/latest.html. Base on those information, we decide whether we need change rules’ related CWE. If some rules related CWE need be changed, we will put the change in next release of the CodeCheck.

And when we design a new rule, we follow the guide on: https://cwe.mitre.org/documents/cwe_usage/guidance.html. We search the key words of the rule’s purpose in CWE website(https://cwe.mitre.org/find/index.html) to find related CWE and based on the CWE description, related CVE to decide which CWE will be match with our rule.
