CVE Identifiers

CVE Identifiers: The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) system provides a reference-method for publicly known information-security vulnerabilities and exposures. CVE is used by the Security Content Automation Protocol, and CVE IDs are listed on MITRE’s system as well as the US National Vulnerability Database. See here.

US National Vulnerability Database

The National Vulnerability Database can be found here.

The National Vulnerability Database is the U.S. government repository of standards-based vulnerability management data represented using the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). This data enables automation of vulnerability management, security measurement, and compliance. NVD includes databases of security checklists, security related software flaws, misconfigurations, product names, and impact metrics. NVD supports the Information Security Automation Program (ISAP). In addition to providing a list of Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs), the NVD scores CVEs to quantify the risk of vulnerabilities, calculated from a set of equations based on metrics such as access complexity and availability of a remedy.
