2. Retrieve and Configure THOR Seed¶
2.1. Download THOR Seed using Voucher Trials¶
Trial users receive a link that leads to a web page, which lists the attributes of the voucher rial including start date, expiration date, the life time of each license and quota statistics.
You have to read and accept the EULA and check the box to enable the download links.
2.2. Download THOR Seed in Customer Portal¶
Every applicable contract in our customer portal shows a certain button in the “Actions” column, which leads you to a THOR Seed download page.
The THOR Seed download page lists all attributes of the contract including the total quota, used licenses and the lifetime of each license. (see the FAQ section at the end of this document for more details on the terms)
2.3. Configure THOR Seed (Optional)¶
THOR Seed is the PowerShell script that retrieves THOR packages with a valid license for the end system on which it was started, executes a THOR scan and cleans up afterwards.
The version that you’ve retrieved from our customer portal already contains a token that is connected with you voucher trial or contract. It is also configured to use our cloud systems to retrieve THOR packages. (users of the ASGARD platform can also use an on-premise ASGARD server to retrieve package from that local system)
2.3.1. Modify the Default Configuration¶
In the section “PRESET CONFIGS” you can modify or choose different scan options.
THOR Seed already includes good presets that can just be “selected” further below in the section.
A list of all options can be found here: https://github.com/NextronSystems/nextron-helper-scripts/tree/master/thor-help
The THOR manual contains a complete description of most of these features and can downloaded from the “Downloads” section in the Nextron customer portal.
2.3.2. Define False Positive Filters¶
THOR Seed also includes a section in which you could include false positive statements (separated by new line) and defined as regular expressions.
It’s important to use escaping as it is used in regular expressions to escape e.g., back slashes, periods, dollar and asterisk characters. The expression is applied to a full log line. The THOR manual has more information on these filters and a list of examples.
