Greenbone Security Feed: Development

The content of the Greenbone Security Feed undergoes a distinct process before it arrives at our customers' sites.

The process usually starts with security alerts. Each alert is automatically inserted into the NVT Management System, creating a ticket. The tickets are processed in systematic phases by the Greenbone Labs team:

  1. Screening (validity)
  2. Research (type, correlation, priority)
  3. Implementation
  4. Quality Assurance
  5. Release (into feed service)

In cases where readily implemented NVTs arrive via our technology partners or via security communities, the phases are similar, but concentrate on quality assurance.
