Proposed Products List



Folks,

We've been working through the lists of products you all suggested as "must-have" products for CVE to cover, and we have given them all careful consideration. Based on your input and our own analysis and discussion, we present to you the proposed list (below) of "must-have products," along with the previously released lists of full and partial coverage information sources.

We see these lists as a waypoint for ongoing board discussions, not as a final destination, and we plan to review and revise these lists with the Board on a regular basis. We also still have a significant amount of internal analysis to do in terms of impacts on our processes and (potentially) even the feasibility of achieving these goals. 

At this juncture, we believe it is important to discuss these results and issues in the next few weeks (early October?) in an Editorial Board teleconference. We believe a teleconference is needed so that we can have a much more rich discussion than we would by simply continuing the discussion on the Editorial Board email list. Please note that the planned teleconference should not abridge or otherwise prevent any discussion on the Board list of any topics of interest. As such, we will continue to publish interim results to the Board list as they are developed.

=====
CVE COVERAGE GOALS
=====
CVE's coverage goals are stated in terms of "sources" of information (e.g. web sites, vendor advisories, vulnerability databases) and "products" (e.g. Microsoft Office, Red Hat Enterprise Linux).  


=====
SOURCES
=====
We separate sources into 2 major groups: 
- Those that should be fully covered ("Full Coverage")
- Those that should be partially covered ("Partial Coverage")

"Full Coverage" means that for nearly all issues disclosed by the source that could be associated with a CVE entry, there will be an associated CVE entry, regardless of the criticality of the issue. Although a source is named as "Full Coverage," we purposely use the phrasing "nearly all issues disclosed" to allow the flexibility to potentially postpone coverage of minor issues.

"Partial Coverage" means that the source will be actively monitored but issues will be processed and associated with CVE entries based on a variety of editorial judgments. 

As a bridge to the product coverage goals, we further sub-divide each of these lists into 2 sub-lists:
- "Vendor," meaning the source can be associated with a vendor or primary maintainer of a product or set of products.
- "Other," a catch-all for things like vulnerability databases, mailing lists and advisories from coordination centers, which tend to disclose vulnerability information from many different vendors.

PLEASE NOTE: MITRE actively monitors many sources beyond this list.  These sources include things like blogs from vulnerability researchers, conference proceedings and media outlets. Monitoring this set of sources has proven to be productive for and informative to the CVE analysts. Which sources are of most utility is highly dependent on a given situation. As such, we don't believe it of general utility to list them all specifically.

======
PRODUCTS
======
All products listed are considered to be "must have".  This means that we will ensure that a CVE ID is issued for any public disclosure for the product provided that:

a) the disclosure is publicly associated with the product with a reasonably recognizable variant of the product name (we are not going to entirely solve the product identification problem)

b) the disclosure is published in at least one source that is listed as either "full coverage" or "partial coverage", per the list of sources above.


Products are stated as "vendor: product name", where the product name may be a specific product, set of products or "all".
