The following release updates are available for the latest CxIAST version Use the search tool to find a specific subject.

New Features and Changes

CxIAST version 3.3.2 includes the following new features and changes:



Setup & Configuration

Version upgrade: The upgrade is supported from v3.0.0 and above. Otherwise, it is required to clean the DB and uninstall the version before running clean install of v3.3.2.

Note : The .NET Core SDK version might need to be upgraded to support the new AC-even in an upgrade.

New AC prerequisites: .NET Core 2.1.5 or 2.1.6.

SSL Configuration: Allowing SSL configuration from the installer.

Management enhancements

  • API Discovery – Provides visibility regarding which APIs are exposed by the monitored applications, when it was first discovered, and which APIs have been tested versus which ones have not.

    * API Discovery is currently only supported for Java on Spring MVC, Jersey and Spring boot

  • Functional c overage calculation update – Prior to version 3.3, functional coverage indication was calculated by 2 techniques:

    1. Method coverage – rough estimation of used method percentage during the functional test.

    2. Number of unique requests, which help with comparing the quality and difference between two scans.

      In v3.3 we are replacing (when applicable) the 1st technique (method coverage) with a new functional testing coverage estimation which is based on the API Coverage, which is more aligned with the QA way of test coverage estimation.

  • Allow actions while scan in progress – Prior to v3.3, any action on a vulnerability (Change state, Severity, ...) required the scan to be stopped. From version 3.3, you can do it anytime.

  • Putting scan into SDLC context – You can now associate a specific scan with a specific build number or any other information using tags. Tags can be free of text or any Jenkins variable. This enables easier orientation when reviewing scan result in the CxIAST UI. (Scan tags can also be added via REST API or directly by the agent.)
