Lucent Sky AVM 5.0 released
January 12, 2018
Lucent Sky AVM 5.0 is the second major release of 2017. It brings architectural updates and performance improvements from CLEAR Engine API 2.0, as well as numerous new features such as expanded availability of context-aware remediation suggestion.
Updates in Lucent Sky AVM 5.0 include:
- CLEAR Engine API 2.0 - the WCF API of CLEAR Engine has been updated to 2.0. The v2.0 API is not backward-compatible with the v1.0 API found in Lucent Sky AVM 2.0 - 4.8. If you only use clients developed by Lucent Sky (web UI, CLI, and IDE plug-ins for Visual Studio and Eclipse), you don’t have to make any change. However, if you have custom-built interfaces for CLEAR Engine, you will have to update them to use the v2 API. Learn more about the changes in CLEAR Engine API 2.0 released.
- Context-aware remediation suggestions - remediation suggestion received another update in Lucent Sky AVM 5.0 and it is now available on all vulnerability categories where Instant Fixes are not available. Over the next few months, we will continue to improve remediation suggestion to make it more accurate and extend it to all vulnerability categories.
- Priority score calculation - priority score is no longer calculated in web UI, but calculated in CLEAR Engine during the last stage of analysis. This allows priority score to take more vectors into account to more accurately represent the actual risk of an individual vulnerability. API clients can continue to use legacy priority score calculation by overriding the priority score calculated by CLEAR Engine.
- Minor improvements and bug fixes - minor improvements and bug fixes were done to the Web UI
