Host scanning

Prisma Cloud scans all hosts where Defender is installed.
Defender scans hosts for the following types of vulnerabilities:
  • Host configuration
    : Vulnerabilities in the host setup.
  • Docker daemon configuration
    : Vulnerabilities that stem from misconfiguring your Docker daemons. Docker daemon derives its configuration from various files, including /etc/sysconfig/docker or /etc/default/docker. Misconfigured daemons affect all container instances on a host.
  • Docker daemon configuration files
    : Vulnerabilities that arise from improperly securing critical configuration files with the correct permissions.
  • Docker security operations
    : Recommendations and reminders for extending your current security best practices to include containers.
Prisma Cloud implements the checks from:
  • CIS Distribution Independent Linux v2.0.0.
  • CIS Amazon Linux 2 Benchmark v1.0.0 (for AL 2)
  • CIS Amazon Linux Benchmark v2.1.0 (for AL 1)

Reviewing host scan reports

Prisma Cloud lets you filter the displayed hosts by searching for specific hosts or by collection. Collections support AWS tags. When creating new collections, specify the tags you want to use for filtering in the
Labels
field.
