You must have a role that includes edit permission for Vulnerability Testing to set up Attack Surface Testing. To check your role-based permissions go to SettingsConfigurationsAccess ManagementRoles, select the role, and find Vulnerability Testing on the Components tab under Incident ResponseDetections.

To set up Attack Surface Testing for the first time, complete the following tasks:

  1. Accept the End-User Licensing Agreement (EULA).

    The EULA gives Cortex XSIAM permission to conduct attack surface testing scans. You only need to accept the EULA once. After accepting the EULA the Vulnerability Testing Configuration page will open automatically so you can select the targets for testing.

  2. Select targets for attack surface testing.

    In this task, you'll select the directly-discovered services upon which Cortex XSIAM will run attack surface tests. After the initial set-up, you can update this set of targets anytime.

After you complete the set-up tasks, Cortex XSIAM will begin daily attack surface testing scans. You can perform the following post-setup tasks to access attack surface test results and change your attack surface testing configuration.
