Peter M. Mell, Timothy Grance
[Superseded by SP 800-51 Rev. 1 (February 2011): http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=907934] The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) vulnerability naming scheme is a dictionary of common names for publicly known information technology (IT) system vulnerabilities. It is an emerging industry standard that has achieved wide acceptance by the security industry and a number of government organizations. Federal departments and agencies should use this standard for computer vulnerability related activities.
