Updated Support for Using System-Created Authentication Records from Policy Compliance in Your Vulnerability Scans
With this release, you can start using system created authentication records from Policy Compliance in your vulnerability scans. Instance discovery and record creation will continue to be based on compliance scan data discovered for running instances when this option is selected in your compliance option profile. Once system authentication records are created, they can be used in compliance scans and in vulnerability scans. System authentication records will be used in addition to user created authentication records when authentication is enabled for your scans.
Updated Host List Detection API and Report API with CVE List
Please note that this feature is being pushed to a future release.
