|Published:||August 19, 2011|
|Abstract:||This report defines the Common Platform Enumeration (CPE) Naming version 2.3 specification. The CPE Naming specification is a part of a stack of CPE specifications that support a variety of use cases relating to IT product description and naming. The CPE Naming specification defines the logical structure of names for IT product classes and the procedures for binding and unbinding these names to and from machine-readable encodings. This report also defines and explains the requirements that IT products must meet for conformance with the CPE Naming version 2.3 specification.|
