Resource: Finding

Security Command Center finding.

A finding is a record of assessment data like security, risk, health, or privacy, that is ingested into Security Command Center for presentation, notification, analysis, policy testing, and enforcement. For example, a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in an App Engine application is a finding.

Severity

The severity of the finding.

Enums
SEVERITY_UNSPECIFIED This value is used for findings when a source doesn't write a severity value.
CRITICAL

Vulnerability: A critical vulnerability is easily discoverable by an external actor, exploitable, and results in the direct ability to execute arbitrary code, exfiltrate data, and otherwise gain additional access and privileges to cloud resources and workloads. Examples include publicly accessible unprotected user data and public SSH access with weak or no passwords.

Threat: Indicates a threat that is able to access, modify, or delete data or execute unauthorized code within existing resources.

HIGH

Vulnerability: A high risk vulnerability can be easily discovered and exploited in combination with other vulnerabilities in order to gain direct access and the ability to execute arbitrary code, exfiltrate data, and otherwise gain additional access and privileges to cloud resources and workloads. An example is a database with weak or no passwords that is only accessible internally. This database could easily be compromised by an actor that had access to the internal network.

Threat: Indicates a threat that is able to create new computational resources in an environment but not able to access data or execute code in existing resources.

MEDIUM

Vulnerability: A medium risk vulnerability could be used by an actor to gain access to resources or privileges that enable them to eventually (through multiple steps or a complex exploit) gain access and the ability to execute arbitrary code or exfiltrate data. An example is a service account with access to more projects than it should have. If an actor gains access to the service account, they could potentially use that access to manipulate a project the service account was not intended to.

Threat: Indicates a threat that is able to cause operational impact but may not access data or execute unauthorized code.

LOW

Vulnerability: A low risk vulnerability hampers a security organization's ability to detect vulnerabilities or active threats in their deployment, or prevents the root cause investigation of security issues. An example is monitoring and logs being disabled for resource configurations and access.

Threat: Indicates a threat that has obtained minimal access to an environment but is not able to access data, execute code, or create resources.

}
Fields
baseScore

Base Metrics Represents the intrinsic characteristics of a vulnerability that are constant over time and across user environments. This metric reflects the context by which vulnerability exploitation is possible.

attackComplexity

enum (AttackComplexity)

This metric describes the conditions beyond the attacker's control that must exist in order to exploit the vulnerability.

privilegesRequired

enum (PrivilegesRequired)

This metric describes the level of privileges an attacker must possess before successfully exploiting the vulnerability.

userInteraction

enum (UserInteraction)

This metric captures the requirement for a human user, other than the attacker, to participate in the successful compromise of the vulnerable component.

scope

enum (Scope)

The Scope metric captures whether a vulnerability in one vulnerable component impacts resources in components beyond its security scope.

confidentialityImpact

enum (Impact)

This metric measures the impact to the confidentiality of the information resources managed by a software component due to a successfully exploited vulnerability.

integrityImpact

enum (Impact)

This metric measures the impact to integrity of a successfully exploited vulnerability.

availabilityImpact

enum (Impact)

This metric measures the impact to the availability of the impacted component resulting from a successfully exploited vulnerability.

AttackVector

This metric reflects the context by which vulnerability exploitation is possible.

Enums
ATTACK_VECTOR_UNSPECIFIED Invalid value.
ATTACK_VECTOR_NETWORK The vulnerable component is bound to the network stack and the set of possible attackers extends beyond the other options listed below, up to and including the entire Internet.
ATTACK_VECTOR_ADJACENT The vulnerable component is bound to the network stack, but the attack is limited at the protocol level to a logically adjacent topology.
ATTACK_VECTOR_LOCAL The vulnerable component is not bound to the network stack and the attacker's path is via read/write/execute capabilities.
ATTACK_VECTOR_PHYSICAL The attack requires the attacker to physically touch or manipulate the vulnerable component.

AttackComplexity

This metric describes the conditions beyond the attacker's control that must exist in order to exploit the vulnerability.

Enums
ATTACK_COMPLEXITY_UNSPECIFIED Invalid value.
ATTACK_COMPLEXITY_LOW Specialized access conditions or extenuating circumstances do not exist. An attacker can expect repeatable success when attacking the vulnerable component.
ATTACK_COMPLEXITY_HIGH A successful attack depends on conditions beyond the attacker's control.

PrivilegesRequired

This metric describes the level of privileges an attacker must possess before successfully exploiting the vulnerability.

Enums
PRIVILEGES_REQUIRED_UNSPECIFIED Invalid value.

PRIVILEGES_REQUIRED_LOW The attacker requires privileges that provide basic user capabilities that could normally affect only settings and files owned by a user. Alternatively, an attacker with Low privileges has the ability to access only non-sensitive resources.
PRIVILEGES_REQUIRED_HIGH The attacker requires privileges that provide significant (e.g., administrative) control over the vulnerable component allowing access to component-wide settings and files.

UserInteraction

This metric captures the requirement for a human user, other than the attacker, to participate in the successful compromise of the vulnerable component.

Enums
USER_INTERACTION_UNSPECIFIED Invalid value.
USER_INTERACTION_NONE The vulnerable system can be exploited without interaction from any user.
USER_INTERACTION_REQUIRED Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires a user to take some action before the vulnerability can be exploited.

Scope

The Scope metric captures whether a vulnerability in one vulnerable component impacts resources in components beyond its security scope.

Enums
SCOPE_UNSPECIFIED Invalid value.
SCOPE_UNCHANGED An exploited vulnerability can only affect resources managed by the same security authority.
SCOPE_CHANGED An exploited vulnerability can affect resources beyond the security scope managed by the security authority of the vulnerable component.

Impact

The Impact metrics capture the effects of a successfully exploited vulnerability on the component that suffers the worst outcome that is most directly and predictably associated with the attack.

Enums
IMPACT_UNSPECIFIED Invalid value.

The email address of the authenticated user or a service account acting on behalf of a third party principal making the request. For third party identity callers, the principalSubject field is populated instead of this field. For privacy reasons, the principal email address is sometimes redacted. For more information, see Caller identities in audit logs.
