KB Vulnerability Templates

Find yourself writing the same descriptions over and over again? Tired of typos coming up in your reports? Faraday provides a simple solution: unify criteria for naming vulnerabilities and save time and effort to yourself and your team.

Write vulns once and use them forever!

Faraday Server allows you to import your own CWE Vulnerabilities DB for you to use as templates. Is a simple CSV made using Open Source projects based in the CWE standard and allows you to create vulnerabilities without worrying about finding references, description, etc.

Populate your KB

You can also create templates manually from a vuln. In the Web UI, select a vuln and select Create template from the dropdown menu.
