Tripwire is pleased to announce the latest release of Tripwire® Whitelist Profiler (WLP). WLP 2020Q2.5.6 is a feature release providing new platform support, helpful options, and additional fixes and improvements.
Configurable severity levels for output rule elements
Tripwire Enterprise (TE) now uses the default severity level of your output rules when assigning severity levels to change versions created by WLP. This allows you to designate the relative significance of changes to output rule elements (which contain the WLP report output), integrating them with your change management process. If you have no need to do so, WLP will continue to behave as before.
Optionally exclude 'Process ID' field from FIM report output
Tired of reviewing unhelpful changes to a node's open ports FIM report output due to changing process IDs? Now you have the option to exclude them.
New platform support for Agent-based whitelisting
This release adds Agent-based whitelisting support for a number of new platforms. WLP now supports whitelisting of open ports, services, software, and users for each of the following Agent-based platforms (unless otherwise indicated):
- CentOS 6, 7, and 8
- Debian 10
- Oracle Linux 6, 7, and 8
- Oracle Solaris 11.4
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8
- Also supports whitelisting of routes
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12 and 15
This release also includes several notable changes, from fixes to enhancements. Please refer to the release notes for the comprehensive list and specific details.
Note: Due to a change in the REST API for TE Console 8.8.4, you must upgrade WLP to this version (2020Q2.5.6) in order to continue whitelisting by saved filter. If you do not employ saved filters to scope your whitelist records to nodes and have no plans to, upgrading WLP is highly encouraged but not required.
This release includes security enhancements, please refer to the release notes for more detail. Tripwire recommends upgrading to this release in order to maintain a more secure deployment.
Tripwire Whitelist Profiler 2020Q2.5.6 is available for download from the Tripwire Customer Center in the APPS section of the Tripwire Enterprise product download page.
