Request a CVE Identifier
CVE Identifier number reservation allows researchers and vendors to include CVE Identifier numbers — also called CVE-IDs and CVEs — in the initial public announcement of a vulnerability, and ensures that the CVE Identifier number is instantly available to all CVE users and makes it easier to track vulnerabilities over time. The methods by which researchers may request CVE Identifier number(s) are described below.
Contact one of the officially recognized CVE Numbering Authorities (CNAs), which will then include a CVE Identifier number in its initial public announcement about your new vulnerability.
If you are unable to obtain a CVE Identifier number via the main methods above, you may request a CVE Identifier number directly from the CVE project. To reserve a CVE Identifier number before publicizing a new vulnerability, vulnerability researchers may contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with our "CVE-ID Reservation Guidelines for Researchers" document. Please note that processing of such requests are prioritized based upon the CVE Editorial Board-approved current data sources, product coverage, and coverage goals. We will then work with you to assign a CVE Identifier number for the issue while you work through the process of publicly disclosing the vulnerability.
Please review the Researcher Responsibilities.
