    How to integer the Vulnerability / Threat Database within my solution ?

    The Vulnerability and Threat Intelligence Database can be integrated in different ways. Here are some methods to do so:

    • Embedded as third-party library: Your product/service may access the database using either our python API (see How to use the API ?) or develop your own parser / script. The retrieved information is then rendered through your engine (SaaS or Web Service) to your customers.
    • Packaged within your product: The database may be packaged and distributed with your product to your customers.
    • Remotely accessed within your SaaS / Cloud environment: The Open Source API has the ability to export the vFeed DB into a MongoDB database. The MongoDB must be installed and configured accordingly to allow remote access. Please refer to MongoDB manual.
