Local Repositories

SecurityCenter supports two types of local repositories: IPv4/IPv6 Repositories and Mobile Repositories.

For general information about repositories, see Repositories.

IPv4/IPv6 Repositories

These are the most common types of repositories used with SecurityCenter. They store IPv4 and IPv6 data from active and passive scans. Data stored in local repositories can be shared between organizations and includes the full range of event and vulnerability metadata.

Option Description

General

Name

A name for the repository.

Description

(Optional) A description for the repository.

Data

IP Ranges

Allowed ranges for importing vulnerability data. Addresses may be a single IP address, IP range, CIDR block, or any comma-delimited combination.

Access

Organizations

Specifies which organizations have access to the vulnerability data stored in the repository.

If groups are configured for the organization, SecurityCenter prompts you to grant or deny access to all of the groups in the organization. For more granular control, grant access within the settings for that group.

Advanced Settings

Generate Trend Data

When enabled, SecurityCenter takes periodic snapshots of .nessus data for vulnerability trending purposes. Trend data appears in queries that compare repository snapshots (e.g., trending line charts).

Note: Disable this option to reduce your disk space usage.

Days Trending

Specifies the number of days of cumulative vulnerability data that you want SecurityCenter to display in dashboard and report vulnerability trending displays.

Enable Full Text Search

When enabled, SecurityCenter includes vulnerability text in periodic snapshots of .nessus data for vulnerability trending purposes. For more information about the Vulnerability Text filter component, see Vulnerability Analysis Filter Components.

LCE Correlation

Log Correlation Engine servers that receive the vulnerability correlation information from this repository.

Mobile Repositories

The Mobile repository is a local type that stores data from various MDM servers. The MDM servers currently supported include ActiveSync, AirWatch MDM, Apple Profile Manager, Good MDM, and MobileIron.

Option Description

General

Name

A name for the repository.

Description

Descriptive text for the repository.

MDM

Type

This setting determines if the repository stores ActiveSync, AirWatch MDM, Apple Profile Manager, Good, or MobileIron types of mobile data.

The authentication settings available vary depending on the type selected.

Scanner

This setting determines which Nessus scanner is used when scanning the MDM server. Only one Nessus scanner may be used to add data to the mobile repository.

Schedule

Sets the schedule for the MDM server to be scanned to update the Mobile repository. On each scan, the current data in the repository is removed and replaced with the information from the latest scan.

Access

Organizations

Specifies which organizations have access to the vulnerability data stored in the repository.

If groups are configured for the organization, SecurityCenter prompts you to grant or deny access to all of the groups in the organization. For more granular control, grant access within the settings for that group.
