Understanding the Security Report and Certificate in Flusk Vault
The Security Report and Certificate are essential tools for Flusk Vault users who hold an active license. They provide an in-depth review of your application's security status, enabling you to generate a comprehensive PDF file with the following details:
Security Report: This feature allows you to export the results of your most recent test as a PDF. The report includes crucial information such as your application's overall security score, the versions it covers, the specific security points addressed, and your compliance level within each security scope (e.g., database, API, etc.).
Security Certificate: The Security Certificate serves as an official document, endorsed by Flusk that attests to the security status of your application.
Achieving the "Secured" Status: Requirements and Guidelines
The Security Report and accompanying Certificate are official attestations of your application's current security status. They are available for export regardless of the state of any identified security issues within your application. Should there be any unresolved security issues, the certificate will unambiguously denote that the application is not considered secure. This approach ensures a transparent and accurate representation of your application's security health.
To have your documents affirm your application as "Secured", it's essential to satisfy the following conditions:
Your most recent security test must not contain any unresolved issues.
