Managing the CVE Initiative requires substantial work on an ongoing basis. This includes maintaining the CVE List; managing the enrollment and activities of the CVE Editorial Board; overseeing the CVE Naming Authorities (CNAs); maintaining the many features of the publicly available CVE website; and working with the numerous software vendors and other security industry organizations to make their Web sites, security tools, databases, documentation, and/or services CVE-Compatible.
CVE is funded by the following organization:
Colonel Larry Huffman
National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC)
CVE Senior Advisory Council
From 2001 through 2005 the CVE Senior Advisory Council ensured that the CVE Initiative received the sponsorship—including funding and guidance—required to maximize the effectiveness of the program in supporting government efforts to improve the nation’s ability to identify and respond to vulnerabilities and information assurance attacks or issues. The council was composed of senior executives listed below from within the U.S. Federal government responsible for information assurance. We thank them for their valuable contributions during that time.
