RE: Methods for validating the current CVE



Dave,

My team has specifically asked if MITRE has already completed (or done some
work) on the mappings. I think they'd like some idea as to what work has
already been done, as opposed to just starting with CVEs and descriptions.

I know you or Steve have mentioned that there are still some issue to be
solved in the mappings. I might also be speaking for other participating
vendors in saying that I'd only need mappings from my VDB to the CVE, and
not those from other vendors (a nice to have, but definitely not a
showstopper).

Please advise on whether at least a partial mapping could be generated, and
if so, we could get started on verifying those.

Andre
