I'm new to xml and I want to start using the new CVRF xml documents for vulnerability reporting.
Background From the icasi.org website: CVRF was created to fill a major gap in vulnerability standardization: the lack of a standard framework for the creation of vulnerability report documentation.
CVRF is an XML-based language that enables different stakeholders across different organizations to share critical security-related information in a single format, speeding up information exchange and digestion.
I do a lot of copy and pasting to publish vulnerability reports for my IT personnel when patches come out and this cvrf format seems to be the ticket to shortcutting that copy and pasting.
I am hoping to be able to import the xml files from Microsoft, Oracle and Red Hat into a pre-defined template thus cutting down the tedious cutting and pasting.
I need help with:
I can't even get past step 1 - importing the xsd file. I open a new Excel workbook, select "Source" on the XML options, it says "this workbook does not contain any XML Map...." I click "xml maps", click "add", browse to my xsd file,
select it and I get this error
Or this (depending on which xsd file I select)
I guess my first question would be, is my idea of using Excel to create the reports even do-able? And if so, can anyone give me some instructions on how to get the xsd file into Excel?
I'm new to xml, but not technology so I will probably need some detailed steps to start out.
