WebSphere Automation

Request to potentially do a singular ifix remediation against many target servers; that is to do an en-mass group execution (one-to-many) of a CVE ifix.

To be able to select a group of servers to install an ifix to, rather than installing an ifix one server at a time. Something with maybe a check box list of servers that you that you can choose to push the ifix to, so that many servers are install...

Improve notification email to indicate when a new bulletin is detected

Improve notification email to indicate when a new bulletin is detected, rather than when an existing (known) vulnerability is detected in a new or existing asset that was newly registered.

Display what APARs / fix pack remediate a CVE

Display, within the UI, what remediates the CVE (e.g. which APARs and which fix packs resolve the vulnerability). I should be able to get the iFix/Fixpack info from within the GUI without having to click anything or leave the UI (no requirement to...

Provide an audit history of what CVEs were detected when, and when the iFix/APAR was applied to resolve it

Provide an audit history of what CVEs were detected when, and when the iFix/APAR was applied to resolve it. This might manifest in two ways: REST API to query the audit history of an individual (or collection of) server, install, CVE. A CSV report...

IDEA En-mass Group Execution of a CVE ifix – Priority 2

Enhance WSA to display entire available & applicable remediation artifacts. Currently, WebSphere Automation displays only the absolute latest remediation artifacts (like APARs, etc).

Support non-authenticated, non-TLS mail server (port 25)

To support simple POC setups, we should support "non-secured" (no Auth, no TLS) mail servers. These simpler mail server configurations are used in environments for tool-based / automated notifications.

Add Recommended Fixes

Using the current version info, unresolved CVEs info and applied fixes, you should be able to provide the recommended ifixes or fixpacks that would resolve the CVE and provide the link to the fix.

IDEA Fixpack Augmentation – Priority 1 The recommendation is to augment the remediation artifact to include the entire history of the available fixpacks that are applicable to a vulnerability which is not done today. The current view on the glass reflects IBM’s design decision taken from a security standpoint, that WSA will promote the latest fixpack as a best practice and will most likely remain as the default choice. Kaiser can work with the API approach to install fixpacks that are not at the latest level via API customization but it would be nice to have it in the UI visibility.

As an example of why this approach would be useful, consider Kaiser’s current approach offers developers the choice of n-1, n-2, and current fixpack version. A view on the glass that will show if eight of ten CVE’s are fixed in one fixpack, that K...

Support Standalone Deployment Manager

WebSphere Automation currently cannot register a WAS ND Deployment Manager but application servers only. If the Dmgr is running on a separate system, it will not be monitored. This introduces two risks: a) WSA shows the envronment as secure but th...
