This document attempts to interpret the history and rationale behind changes made in the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) from version 1 to version 2 (referred to as CVSS v1 and v2 in this document.) This document contains multiple appendices that provide a historic record of the stages and subsequent rationale that led to the developed standard; however, it is not intended as a CVSS user guide. For detailed how-to information, please see the complete CVSS Guide.
