Security (CVSS CVE)

Cowboy Denny



CVSS: Common Vulnerability Scoring System.  The CVSS framework is maintained by the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST), a nonprofit organization consisting of more than 500 members.

CVSS scores are calculated using a formula consisting of vulnerability-based metrics. A CVSS score is derived from scores in these three groups: Base, Temporal and Environmental. Scores range from zero to 10, with zero representing the least severe and 10 representing the most severe.

CVECommon Vulnerabilities and Exposures. CVE divides threats into two categories: vulnerabilities and exposures. The catalog, which is sponsored by Department of Homeland Security's (DHS), is designed to standardize the way each known vulnerability or exposure is identified.

CVE system is a vulnerability classification scheme, which assigns each vulnerability a unique identifier, as listed in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Vulnerability Database. CVE identifiers are formatted as follows:

CVE-[Four-Digit Year]-[Sequential Identifier]
