ThreatGet comes with a risk matrix derived from ISO/SAE 21434. This risk matrix can also be displayed in the Enterprise Architect Plugin.
If you want to see or modify the risk matrix you can do this in the risk matrix view. To switch to the risk matrix view, please click on the
Name button in the right upper corner and then select Risk Matrix.
The initial values correspond with the recommendations of the standard.
The value 1 is the lowest risk and value 5 is the highest risk. It is possible to modify the risk matrix with values ranging from 1 to 5 depending on the type of project you are working on.
Likelihood has the following potential values: Very Low, Low, Medium, High.
Impact has the following potential values: Negligible, Moderate, Major, Severe.
The matrix is freely configurable. As can be seen in the images below.
The colors change depending on the value. By clicking Save, the changes in the risk matrix can be applied.
NOTE: The save button can only be clicked when at least one of the fields has been modified.
If successful, you will receive a message telling you that the risk matrix has been updated.
The namespaces are used in ThreadGet for elements, tagged values, tags, and rules. Namespaces represent the author, editor, and responsible institution, who are accountable for the toolbox element.
The elements, tagged values, tags, and rules that come with the installation in ThreatGet have the "AIT" namespace. AIT elements, tagged values, etc. cannot be edited.
In addition to the "AIT" namespace, there is also the standard "USER" namespace. The "USER" namespace is used for the self-created objects. To edit the namespaces or create a new one, open the "Namespaces" area, which is located in the admin menu.
Here you will find an overview of the existing namespaces. Select the "USER" namespace, as shown below.
You can now change the Title and/or Description of this namespace. You can also create a new namespace for your elements. To do this, click on + , as shown in the picture.
Now enter the name and description. In our example, we use "Tutorial Namespace" as the title. Then click on "Save", the symbol for it is on the top right side as shown in the image.
Default namespaces are marked with (Default) next to the Title. Now click on the marked button to make the namespace the default.
