General Capability Questions

1) Product Accessibility <CR_2.4>

Provide a short description of how and where your capability is made available to your customers and the public (required):

Red Hat are providing CVE names on all Red Hat Security Advisories where appropriate and working with MITRE to analyze existing and add new Linux related issues.

Red Hat Security Advisories are distributed by Red Hat to various public security mailing lists, are available from our website, and are made available to users of the Red Hat Network.

Mapping Questions

4) Map Currency Indication <CR_5.1>

Describe how and where your capability indicates the most recent CVE version used to create or update its mappings (required):

This is implicit as our advisories when released contain the latest CVE names.

5) Map Currency Update Approach <CR_5.2>

Indicate how often you plan on updating the mappings to reflect new CVE versions and describe your approach to keeping reasonably current with CVE versions when mapping them to your repository (recommended):

Our process includes a monthly check to keep the CVE mapping accurate and current. We have automated scripts that check for the change in status of candidates to entries and a process in place to propagating those changes.

6) Map Currency Update Time <CR_5.3>

Describe how and where you explain to your customers the timeframe they should expect an update of your capability's mappings to reflect a newly released CVE version (recommended):

Not applicable

13) Candidate to Entry Promotion <CR_6.3>

If CVE candidates are supported or used, explain your policy for changing candidates into entries within your capability and describe where and how this is communicated to your customers (recommended):

http://www.redhat.com/solutions/security/news/cve.html

14) Candidate and Entry Search Support <CR_6.4>

If CVE candidates are supported or used, explain where and how a customer can find the explanation of your search function's ability to look for candidates and entries by using just the YYYY-NNNN portion of the CVE names (recommended):

http://www.redhat.com/solutions/security/news/cve.html

15) Search Support for Promoted Candidates <CR_6.5>

Type-Specific Capability Questions

Online Capability Questions

26) Finding Online Capability Tasks Using CVE Names <CR_A.4.1>

Give detailed examples and explanations of how a "find" or "search" function is available to the user to locate tasks in the online capability by looking for their associated CVE name or through an online mapping that links each element of the capability with its associated CVE name(s) (required):

Find CAN-2001-0784

https://rhn.redhat.com/cve/CAN-2001-0784.html

Find all 2001 Candidates

http://www.redhat.com/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=CAN-2001&form=extended&wm=beg
