Subject: Reporting Structure / Data Definitions, Dictionary
While I am awaiting an answer or two on the Manager component and experiencing some report output issues with GSA I have been obsessing on how to possibly starting to work on establishing some custom reporting framework that will hopefully extend the functionality I use in Hackerstorm....
I would like to see something DB driven, something that can generate graphical output, and with any luck generate delta diffs between a Tasks/Scopes baseline scan and subsequent followup scans...
Hackerstorm appears to be stalled / defunct, as I haven't been able to get a response from anyone over there in a long time.. They had a nice working dashboard reporting system for Nessus I was hoping to adapt to OpenVAS but I have no way to examine their backend PHP code that parsed the XML reports and generated the graphs, so I am completely in the dark as to how this was all done.
As expected my CIO/CTO want to see pie charts of the 10,000 ft view, not the granularity of any detailed reports. Who'd have thought?? ;-)
Is there a report data dictionary / definition spec(s) anyone can supply or assist me with?? I have absolutely zero programming experience but with the right info I am sure I can pull what I need from the OpenVAS reports into some GPL'd, web-enabled framework ala Agata Report or similar...
I would like to enable some capacity / function for a report to be dumped to SQL (MySQL or MSSQL) on top of being stored in SqlLite in the Manager module... I think this might go a long way to help store disparate scan data as I have 60+ regional sites being scanned, separate scan tasks for workstations, servers, and custom scans for special hardware deployments...
Would also like to see this so each sites respective Admin staff could log in and view, export, their own sites scans instead of me having to export and prepare a report package manually for them each scan interval...
Any help, direction, or slap back to reality if this is out of my grasp
would be appreciated... ;-)
