The Libraries page provides a list of all libraries that are in use by the corresponding applications. The page highlights the vulnerabilities and associated risks introduced by the use of those libraries.
This image is an example of the Libraries page:
- You can use the Search filter for the Affected Tiers, Status, and Existing Libraries categories. For more information about the Search filter, see View Data Using Search Filter in Monitor Application Security Using Cisco Secure Application.
- The Set Status and Edit Note bulk edit options are available if you have the Configure Cisco Secure Application permission.
The libraries page includes these details:
Existing libraries in the selected application.
You can click on the row to view the details of the library. See View Vulnerabilities for a Library.
The risk score given to the library. This helps to identify which libraries require immediate remediation. The higher the risk score, the higher the impact of the collection of vulnerabilities within the library.
Click this field to sort the risk score from high to low or low to high.
The number of vulnerabilities based on severity. Severity is represented with these colors:
Red = Critical
Orange = High
Yellow = Medium
Purple = Low
Hover on the required color to know the severity.
If any of the preceding colors are replaced with the grey color, it indicates that there are no vulnerabilities of that specific severity.
For example, Vulnerabilities display the grey, orange, yellow, and purple colors instead of the red, orange, yellow, and purple colors. Here, the red color is replaced with the grey color. This indicates that there are no critical vulnerabilities.
Click this field to sort in increasing or decreasing order based on the number of vulnerabilities.
The application tier that is vulnerable because of its relationship to the corresponding library.
Click the flow map icon () next to an application to view the application flow map in the AppDynamics dashboard.
|Remediation||The recommended version of the library that can be used for remediation.|
The status of the vulnerable libraries. By default, when a vulnerability is detected the value is Discovered.
The status value can be:
The Discovered, Downgraded, and Upgraded status are auto-populated.
If you have the Configure Cisco Secure Application permission, you can change the Status by selecting the required libraries and using the Set Status option.
You must have the configure permission to view and use the Set Status option.
Click this field to sort based on the status of the vulnerable library.
Notes can be used to share information with other users or document findings during the review of a vulnerability.
If you have the Configure permission, you can add notes by selecting a library and using the Edit Note option. Without the Configure permission, the Edit Note option is unavailable.
View Vulnerabilities for a Library
To view all the vulnerabilities within a specific library, click the row on the Libraries page. This directs you to the library details page with the following information:
The upper pane displays the details about the vulnerable library, which includes these fields:
|Name||Name of the selected library.|
|Affected Tiers (Nodes)|
Name of the affected tier. You can click the flowmap icon () next to the tier name to view the flowmap on the AppDynamics dashboard.
The number in the parenthesis () indicates the number of affected nodes.
The risk score for this library.
This field is unavailable when the library is fixed (upgraded or downgraded to the required version), removed, or not vulnerable.
|Vulnerabilities||The number of vulnerabilities for each severity.|
The recommended version of the library that can be used for remediation.
When a library is not vulnerable, this field displays the value as N/A.
This field is unavailable when the library is fixed (upgraded or downgraded to the required version), or removed.
|Status||The status of the library.|
You can copy the notes if required.
If you have the Configure Cisco Secure Application permission, then you can add or edit the Library Notes.
The bottom pane provides the following details:
You can use the Search filter to view the vulnerability details list based on the Severity or the Vulnerability value. For more information about the Search filter, see View Data Using Search Filter in Monitor Application Security Using Cisco Secure Application.
