Role Availability Read-Only Analyst Manager

DDI Frontline VM Configuration

To configure AlienApp for DDI Frontline VM in USM Anywhere, you need to generate an API key in your Digital Defense Incorporated (DDI) Frontline Vulnerability Manager (VM) instance and enter it into USM Anywhere.

To set up your DDI Frontline API

  1. Log in to your DDI Frontline VM instance.
  2. Go to My Profile > API Tokens > Create new token.
  3. In the Add New Token window, enter a name for the API token and click OK.
  4. Click Click to show key to see your API key.

    Copy this API key to enter into USM Anywhere.

To enable the AlienApp for DDI Frontline VM

  1. In USM Anywhere, go to Data Sources > AlienApps.
  2. Click the Available Apps tab.
  3. Search for the AlienApp, and then click the tile.
  4. Click Configure API.
  5. If you have more than one deployed USM Anywhere Sensor, select the sensor that you want to use for the enabled AlienApp.

    AlienApps operate through a deployed sensor and use APIs to integrate with the connected third-party technology. Select the sensor that can access the integration endpoint. The HTTPS connections to the API will originate from this sensor, so it is important to make sure the sensor has network access to the AlienApp API endpoints.

  6. Enter the API Key.

  7. Check Allow Asset Creation to allow DDI Frontline VM scans to create new assets in USM Anywhere.

    Check Merge Duplicate Assets if you allow USM Anywhere to run a match against the DDI Frontline asset VM identification to merge the assets found with existing USM Anywhere assets.

    See AlienApp for DDI Frontline VM Asset Discovery and Management for more details on the asset creation and merging processes.

  8. Click Save.

The AlienApp for DDI Frontline VM and the AlienApp for AT&T Managed Vulnerability Platform

Because both the AlienApp for DDI Frontline VM and the AlienApp for AT&T Managed Vulnerability Platform share configuration components through AlienApp for DDI Frontline VM, configuring one AlienApp will cause the other to appear as configured in your My Apps page. This is expected behavior. Do not delete or disable the AlienApp for DDI Frontline VM or the AlienApp for AT&T Managed Vulnerability Platform. Changes to one AlienApp will cause configuration errors with the other AlienApp.
