Sysdig Secure

Vulnerability Management Landing Page

The new Vulnerability Management landing page offers a place to identify, track, and initiate vulnerability management workflows. Here, you can see trends, priorities, and top action items among the vulnerability risks in your environment. The landing page covers all the scanning capabilities for images, workloads, and hosts, as collected by the installed scanners: vulnerability command-line interface (CLI), registry, host, and runtime. Widgets on the page enable you to take action or export data to your native information security tool ecosystem.

This feature enables:

  • Vulnerability Managers to easily identify changes in Risk Posture (trends), the most pervasive vulnerabilities, the latest vulnerabilities, and infrastructure segments with the most exposure to risk.
  • Program Managers to get easy insight into Policy posture.
  • Architects to easily access the data regarding scan counts and adoption rates.
  • The Vulnerability Management team to prioritize and manage vulnerabilities at a program level.

Container Registry Scanning

Image Registry Scanning functionality is available as part of the Sysdig Vulnerability Management suite in on-prem deployments.

This feature provides an added layer of security between the pipeline and runtime stages, allowing you to gain complete visibility into potential vulnerabilities before deployment.

The supported vendors are:

  • AWS Elastic Container Registry (ECR) - Single Registry and Organizational
  • JFrog Artifactory - SaaS and On-Premises
  • Azure Container Registry (ACR) - Single Registry
  • IBM Container Registry (ICR)
  • Quay.io - SaaS
  • Harbor

Once the container registry is instrumented and analyzed, you can generate registry reports to extract, forward, and post-process the vulnerability information.

Added Vulnerability Management APIs

The following API endpoints have been released in Technical Preview to list and filter vulnerability scan results for Pipeline, Registry, and Runtime as well as to fetch detailed scan results in JSON format:

  • Get a list of pipeline scan results: GET /secure/vulnerability/v1beta1/pipeline-results
  • Get a list of registry scan results: GET /secure/vulnerability/v1beta1/registry-results
  • Get a list of runtime scan results: GET /secure/vulnerability/v1beta1/runtime-results
  • Get full scan results: GET /secure/vulnerability/v1beta1/results

These API endpoints are applicable only to the current Vulnerability scanning engine.

Sysdig Secure

Vulnerability Management Scanning Engine

Sysdig now provides the Vulnerability Management Scanning engine for all on-premises users. This scanning engine was released in April 2022 and brings the latest vulnerability features and improvements.

For 6.2.1 fresh installations, the Vulnerability Management engine will be the only scanning engine provided. For customers upgrading from 5.0.x, 5.1.x, or 6.x versions, both the Legacy Scanning engine and the newer Vulnerability Management engine are available.

Expanded Support for OpenShift 4 in Unified Compliance

Sysdig Secure support for CIS RedHat OpenShift Container Platform v4 Benchmark has been expanded in Unified Complience. This includes 13 new controls in Sections 1-4 for 92% coverage, and 11 new controls in Section 5 for overall coverage of 74%.

Infrastructure Resource Changes

With version 6.2.1, the number of components the Sysdig Platform requires to run both Sysdig Secure and Sysdig Monitor is nearly doubled. This release introduces new product features in both products, as well as upgrades and enhancements of the datastores from the last major release in September 2021.

Sysdig has provided general testing with Platform configurations on 5.1.x and 6.0.x branches. The table below compares the CPU and memory requirements for a Sysdig backend with 600 agents connected to each.

VersionCPU RequirementsMemory Requirements
v5167 Cores286 GB
v6134 Cores372 GB

The usage for each on-premises installation is different, so your load and sizing requirements may differ from the table above. To prepare for your upgrade from 5.x to 6.x, reach out to your account team for assistance to ensure your infrastructure meets requirements.

Secure-Only Backend Enablement Optimized

For users who enable a backend deployment with the Secure-Only configuration set to true, the footprint of Monitor components has been further reduced and minimized. However, for those upgrading from 5.x+, the addition of features and components in 6.2.1 has a complex effect on the overall resource usage.

  • In general, 6.0.0 requires less CPU and slightly more memory than 5.+.
  • As version 6.2.1 has more components than 5.1.x, this means that the shared components (the ones used in both versions) require fewer resources in version 6.2.1.
  • If you are upgrading from an existing branch with the legacy scanning engine, running both scanning engine components will require the most resources.

For users with limited infrastructure resources who only use Sysdig Secure, please contact customer support or your Sysdig account team with your infrastructure node count and node size to ensure that the Secure-Only mode is the right deployment type for your needs.

Internal Agent Dashboards Added (On-Prem Only)

An Internal Agents Dashboard has been added under Integrations > Data Sources in Sysdig Secure for viewing granular information about the agents deployed in your environment.

Known Defects

  • For 6.2.1 fresh installs, a few compliance checks that used the legacy scanner will not be available until a later release. Reach out to your account team for the full list of which checks are unavailable.
  • The Get Started page doesn’t work in a 6.2.1 fresh install as it relies on a legacy scanning endpoint that is not longer available. This will be patched in a future release.
  • If your agents are installed in Secure mode, some of the panels in the new Internal Agents Dashboard are missing data. This will be corrected in a future agent release. The affected panels are: Kubernetes Metadata Up to Date, CPU Usage, Memory Usage, and Total Agents without Cluster.
  • The new Internal Agents Dashboard will not load properly if the Cloudsec service is not enabled. This service can be enabled through a flag in the Installer: sysdig.secure.cloudsec.enabled = true.

Sysdig Monitor

Cloud Metrics

  • Supports the following features:

  • For users upgrading from 5.x.x to 6.x.x on-prem versions, the AWS CloudWatch API metrics will be converted from Sysdig notation to Prometheus. All the dashboards and alerts will be converted automatically.

  • AWS CloudWatch API metrics will still be available in the Sysdig notation (aws.*)if the metrics are queried directly via the API. However, aws.*.latency metrics will be reported in seconds instead of nanoseconds, which was required for consistency between the AWS CloudWatch API metrics and AWS CloudWatch Metric Streams metrics. Users querying the aws.*.latency metrics directly via API from Grafana should change the time unit to seconds.

Defect Fixes

  • Fixed the Integrations without workload type.
  • Fixed the list alerts API for summary information
  • Changed icons in Event feed for policy type.
  • Fixed an issue in which an appended rule could result in empty tags.

Sysdig components include a log4j library in our standard distribution that was vulnerable. This library is included for compatibility reasons only and is not used for primary logging. Sysdig has determined that our products are not vulnerable based on our application architecture and mitigating controls.

We have released a patch version of our self hosted-software which upgrades the vulnerable version of log4j or adds additional mitigating controls suggested by vendors.
