Test and Verification -> Static depth for infrastructure: Test of infrastructure components for known vulnerabilities

Risk and Opportunity

Risk: Infrastructure components might have vulnerabilities.
Opportunity: Test for known vulnerabilities in infrastructure components. Often, the only way to respond to known vulnerabilities in operating system packages is to accept the risk and wait for a patch. As the patch needs to be applied fast when it is available, this activity depends on 'Usage of a maximum life for images'.
