Some of our users have asked us what is the best way to port your legacy Vuln::DB entries into your VulnDB HQ account. First, you can use the API to build a custom script (checkout VulnDB HQ API v1 in our support site).
Alternatively you can use our migration script (vulndb_bridge.rb):
As you can see, this is a fairly basic Ruby script that leverages Rails’ ActiveResource library to communicate with both applications.
For instance, if your legacy Vuln::DB instance has the vulndb.local local DNS and your VulnDB HQ account is sg1.vulndbhq.com you should invoke the script as follows:
./vulndb_bridge.rb http://vulndb.local https://user%40domain.com:email@example.com
Remember that the ‘@’ symbol in your email needs to be URL-encoded! Read more about authentication in the API guide.
Hope you find this useful.
