CVE Editorial Board Teleconference - week of June 26-30
All, We would like to have an Editorial Board teleconference during the week of June 26 through 30. Please let me know your availability. I'd plan on two hours. Following are the main topics. Let me know if you think we should cover any additional topics. * CVE content activity update We have been undergoing significant changes in the past year, and we will be making more changes over the next 6 months. I will summarize what we've been doing and why, and the implications for CVE completeness as we continue with our changes. * Role of entries, candidates, and voting I haven't proposed any candidates in the past couple years, and there have been few public comments or complaints on this. At the time, voting had become very unwieldy for participants anyway, due to the large number of issues. At this stage, does it still make sense to distinguish between entries and candidates? * Ongoing related MITRE work We will cover some of our ongoing work, which is related to CVE. Common Configuration Enumeration (CCE) is covering the areas of security-relevant system configuration, configuration guides, and to some degree, policies. The Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) is an effort at classifying vulnerabilities and other security-relevant factors, with a current focus on using this to assess the capabilities of code scanners. If there is sufficient time and interest, we will provide a brief summary of CIEL, which is not dead. * Future role of the Editorial Board The Editorial Board has been quiet in the past couple years, primarily due to MITRE's focus on content. Some members have said that they enjoyed the fruitful discussions/debates from the past. Voting has not taken place, to minimal outcry. CVE itself has now reached widespread adoption, so the Board's role as an advocate for CVE is not necessarily as important as it was in the past. Other MITRE projects such as CME and OVAL have successfully utilized multiple groups instead of a single Board. Given these changes, what role should the Board play in the future? * Discussion of prospective Board members MITRE will be revitalizing the Editorial Board by adding new members. For this round, we will follow the old process of private nomination by MITRE, along with a period of review and commentary.
