IBM SiteProtector Scanner Overview

The IBM SiteProtector scanner module for JSA accesses vulnerability data from IBM SiteProtector scanners through Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) queries.

The IBM SiteProtector scanner retrieves vulnerability data from the RealSecureDB table and polls for new vulnerabilities each time a scan schedule starts. The Compare field enables the query to retrieve any new vulnerabilities from the RealSecureDB table to ensure that duplicate vulnerabilities are not imported. When the IBM SiteProtector scanner is configured, the administrator can create a SiteProtector user account specifically for polling vulnerability data. After the user account is created, the administrator can verify that there are no firewalls that reject queries on the port configured to poll the database.
