Security Life Cycle


Security vulnerability test results. Security engineers collect test results from multiple platforms within the target space system. In this example, automated test results show that Windows XP has been deployed across multiple computers with inconsistent configurations, some of which deviate from DOD security configuration guidance. The engineer must still perform manual test procedures against potential vulnerabilities that are "not reviewed" yet. "Open" refers to discovered but unresolved vulnerabilities.
