CVE Editorial Board

The CVE Editorial Board includes numerous information security-related organizations including commercial security tool vendors, members of academia, research institutions, government agencies, and other prominent security experts. Through open and collaborative discussions, the Board identified the vulnerabilities or exposures and the product coverage to be included in the CVE List, and oversees the ongoing assignment of new entries.

The MITRE Corporation created the CVE Editorial Board, moderates Board discussions, and provides guidance throughout the process to ensure that CVE serves the public interest. Archives of Board meetings and discussions are available for review on the CVE Web site. Other information security experts will be invited to participate on the Board on an as-needed basis based upon recommendations from Board members. See "Process for Adding New Members to the Editorial Board."

CVE Editorial Board roles and tasks vary by member. Some Board members participate actively in different Board functions. Other members act as observers or liaisons with other areas in the security community. See "CVE Editorial Board Roles, Tasks, and Qualifications."
