Re: Database for scan results

I do quite many pentests on a regular base, using a far broader toolset
than only nessus or mbsa. I'm focussed on webapps, which means there is
quite a lot of "handwork" to do that can't be done via
standard-solutions like nessus.

I hacked together a database and quick'n'dirty php-app (which would
misably fail my own pentests) for managing my cases (and boilerplates)
and creating reports.

The db consists of
- N cases
-- each case contains N Servers
--- each server contains N check-families (to me: DNS-Config, Mail,
IP-Checks, Webapp-Checks, Network-Checks)
---- each check-familiy contains N Checks (Title, Description,
References (OSSTM, Wikipedia etc.), Freetext, Rating (5, from "INFO to
SEVERE"), Screenshot-id, Default-Text (a set of automagically insertable
boilerplates), Automatic-Check (using www.serversniff.net's
API-Funktions to import Data from ipLookup, Traceroute, Whois, etc

A simple webinterface allows you to fill every check with any text you
like, any screenshot you take and will support a few checks to be filled
in autmagically using the API from serversniff.net.

I hacked an export-function for creating pseudoxml that can be imported
into a winword-template using a simple vba-macro.

I was thinking about offering this stuff as a simple service at
serversniff.net - but this would require a bit of quality-assurance
(plus translation and usermanagment) first. i think most "real"
pentesters won't be allowed to store their cases on a
third-party-database anyway.

I'd love to see anything like this as OpenSource - but i wasn't able to
find any configurable solution like this. I'd be really interested how
others deal with handling and storing their results.
