08/10 Manage Findings

  • Updated

JupiterOne provides a centralized repository and dashboard to let you easily manage security findings from different sources, including:

  • AWS Inspector findings
  • AWS GuardDuty findings
  • Veracode static and dynamic analysis findings
  • WhiteHat application security findings
  • Tenable Cloud scanning findings
  • HackerOne report findings
  • CVEs and other vulnerability findings
  • Manual penetration testing findings (imported via API - see this guide)

More vulnerability scanner integrations are being added. Current roadmap includes: Rapid7, Qualys, Bugcrowd, White Source, Source Clear, and Snyk.

Managing Findings

Consolidated findings can be accessed in the Alerts app, under the Findings tab. The header tab shows a total count of currently open findings. Selecting it will bring you to the detailed findings view:

JupiterOne will automatically map resources impacted by or related to each finding based on the available attributes from the finding source.

Selecting a finding from the list will show you a graph of those relationships. This allows you to visualize the context to further analyze the finding's impact and to determine a course of action for remediation.

Create Alerts for Findings

You can create custom alert rules to notify you on certain findings, using J1QL to filter and correlate.


The following three rules are included in the J1 Common Alerts Rule Pack:

  • high-severity-finding

    -Alerts on Findings with a severity of High or a numeric severity rating higher than 7 that were new within the last 24 hours.*

  Find Finding with
    (severity='High' or severity='high' or numericSeverity>7) and
    _createdOn >
  • prod-resources-with-high-severity-finding

    -Alerts when Production resources are impacted by high severity findings.*

  Find (Host|DataStore|Application|CodeRepo|Account|Service|Network)
    with tag.Production=true
    that has Finding with severity=('High' or 'high') or numericSeverity=(7 or 8)
  • prod-resources-with-critical-finding

    -Alerts when Production resources are impacted by critical findings.*

  Find (Host|DataStore|Application|CodeRepo|Account|Service|Network)
    with tag.Production=true
    that has Finding with severity=('Critical' or 'critical') or numericSeverity=(9 or 10)

The following rule is included in the J1 AWS Threat Rule Pack:

  • aws-guardduty-inspector-finding-instance-correlation

    -Identifies vulnerable EC2 instances (i.e. with medium or higher rated open Inspector finding) that are also targets of suspicious activities (i.e. with medium or higher rated open GuardDuty finding).*

  Find aws_guardduty_finding with numericSeverity>5 and open=true as guardduty
    that relates to aws_instance as i
    that has aws_inspector_finding with numericSeverity>5 and open=true as inspector
    return i.*, guardduty.*, inspector.*

Visualizing Findings with J1 Query and Graph

You can execute J1QL queries to generate graph visualizations that help you analyze the relationships among findings, the agents/scanners/services that identified them, and the resources they impact.

Here's an example:

Find cve that relates to (Host|HostAgent) with active=true return tree

This will give you a visual like this (you may need to move the nodes around to adjust their positioning):
