|Title:||Common Platform Enumeration: Name Matching Specification Version 2.3|
|Published:||August 19, 2011|
|Abstract:||This report defines the Common Platform Enumeration (CPE) Name Matching version 2.3 specification. The CPE Name Matching specification is part of a stack of CPE specifications that support a variety of use cases relating to IT product description and naming. The CPE Name Matching specification provides a method for conducting a one-to-one comparison of a source CPE name to a target CPE name. In addition to defining the specification, this report also defines and explains the requirements that IT products must meet for conformance with the CPE Name Matching version 2.3 specification.|
