DAST results integration with SSC


I'm looking for guidance on integrating WebInspect results into SSC which currently only contains SAST artifacts. My understanding is that after scanning an application in WebInspect a results artifact (FPR) can be exported from WebInspect and then uploaded into SSC. The static results will "correlate" with the dynamic results so that development teams can view both results and work towards remediation. I haven't had the opportunity to upload DAST results in SSC yet so I'm wondering how the correlation in SSC will be reported. Is there documentation describing the correlation process?

In addition, I'm not sure how the dynamic scan process will work given multiple authenticated scans for a single application. Many of our applications are user role-based so "scan 1 completed with user A" could produce different results than "scan 2 with user B". Can both sets of results get merged into SSC? Is there a way to document the user account in the dynamic scan results within SSC? Will the development teams be able to see both static and dynamic results by downloading the latest FPR and viewing in AuditWorkbench?

I will be working on establishing a new DAST process within our organization so any advise or recommendations would be most appreciated. Thanks!

This is not an RTM reply, but page 279 and onward has alot of the details you are seeking, explaining the integration and showing screenshots of the feature.



I have not personally uploaded DAST results into SSC

Here is a link to the web-based documentation for the latest version of the application. In essence, yes you can have multiple artifacts uploads for the same application version and SSC should be able to handle the results. The results are processed slightly different than with SCA.

By the way, the majority of what you read in the documentation mentions integration through WebInspect Enterprise (WIE). The implementation of WIE will help streamline/integrate/automate some of the steps if you were to simply use WebInspect (WI) with SSC.

With WI you will have to export the file to an FPR and then upload the FPR to SSC. Yes there are ways to do this via CLI or API as well.
