vepRisk - A Web Based Analysis Tool for Public Security Data

Andongabo, A. and Gashi, I. (2017). vepRisk - A Web Based Analysis Tool for Public Security Data. Paper presented at the 13th European Dependable Computing Conference, 4-8 Sep 2017, Geneva, Switzerland.


We present vepRisk (Vulnerabilities, Exploits and Patches Risk analysis tool): a web-based tool for analyzing publically available security data. The tool has a backend modules that mine, extract, parse and store data from public repositories of vulnerabilities, exploits and patches; and a frontend web-based application that provides functionality for analyzing the data. The frontend uses shinyR, hence allowing integration with the R statistical analysis package and seamless use of R functions. We also present initial analysis we have done with the tool, and outline the extensions and future development we plan to integrate into the tool in the near future.
