Repositories

Path: Repositories > Repositories

Repositories are databases within SecurityCenter that contain vulnerability data. You can share repositories with users and organizations based on admin-defined assets. Repositories provide scalable and configurable data storage. Optionally, you can share repository data between multiple SecurityCenters.

Note: The maximum repository size is 32 GB.

When adding local repositories, you define the vulnerability data for each repository as one or more ranges of IP addresses or mobile data types. Scanners attached to a SecurityCenter populate the local repository with vulnerability data. For more information, see Local Repositories.

When adding external repositories, you select previously added local repositories from other SecurityCenters. The remote SecurityCenter synchronizes with your SecurityCenter to populate the external repository with vulnerability data. You can also use external repositories to manually import repository data from an off-network SecurityCenter. External repository data is static and used solely for reporting purposes. For more information, see External Repositories.

Caution: When creating SecurityCenter IPv4 or IPv6 repositories, LCE event source IP ranges must be included along with the vulnerability IP ranges or the event data and event vulnerabilities are not accessible from the SecurityCenter UI.

For more information, see Add a Repository and Manage Repositories.
