About CVE

Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE®) is a dictionary of common names (i.e., CVE Identifiers) for publicly known cybersecurity vulnerabilities. CVE's common identifiers make it easier to share data across separate network security databases and tools, and provide a baseline for evaluating the coverage of an organisation's security tools. CVE is maintained by MITRE Corporation that is American not-for-profit organisation based in Bedford, Massachusetts, and McLean, Virginia. It manages Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) supporting several U.S. government agencies.
