A repository is essentially a database of vulnerability data defined by one or more ranges of IP addresses or mobile data types. SecurityCenter integrates repositories of vulnerability data that are shared as needed among users and organizations based on manager-defined assets. The use of repositories allows for scalable and configurable data storage for organizations. Repository data can also be shared between multiple SecurityCenters. Repositories are configured by the administrative user and made available to the security manager user to assign to users as needed. The maximum repository size is 32 GB.

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.

There are two types of repositories: Local (IPv4, IPv6, and mobile) and External (remote or offline). Local repositories are active repositories of SecurityCenter data collected via scanners attached to the local SecurityCenter. Remote repositories contain IP address and vulnerability information obtained via network synchronization with a second (remote) SecurityCenter. Offline repositories enable SecurityCenter to obtain repository data via manual export/import from a remote SecurityCenter that is not network-accessible. Note that the Type column only appears when there are repositories other than Local.

Repository data collected from a remote or offline repository is static and used solely for reporting purposes.
