Using Components

As previously seen, securiCAD comes with a collection of already prepared standard components. They are found below the list of singular/native objects;

securiCAD Standard Components

 

Dragging each one of the components onto the canvas will only show one object each, the component’s main object. But since these objects already have additional objects connected to them, you can right-click on the object and use “Show All Connected Objects” to see what extra objects the component brought with it.

Show All Connected Objects

 

Objects directly connected to Windows database server.

 

Repeating this with the Oracle Database service, RDP and the AccessControl objects will show all objects connected to the Windows database server component.

 

Using components instead of basic objects is often more convenient when modeling. It is even recommended to create new components while building a model of an architecture since hosts, networks, services and so on tend to be present in several parts of an architecture. Also, if you need to model an object that is similar but not exactly of the same type and set-up as you already have in the model, you can use a component for that, opening it up end make the necessary adjustments to it.
