Re: MITRE can now accept CVE ID publication notifications formatted in JSON



Yes, this process is open for third parties. Because MITRE would be receiving the information in a standardized format, we can process them using some automation tools that we've developed and continue to develop to speed up publication. If Black Duck has a batch, we can work with you to get then to us and get them integrated into the CVE list.

Subject: Re: MITRE can now accept CVE ID publication notifications formatted in JSON


Is this process open for third parties to update CVE entries when information is found? Couple of examples:

1. Update a CVE that is currently reserved in order to reflect it’s publication
2. Update a published CVE to amend the content, description or references.

And what is a reasonable volume for such a third party that would not be overly burdensome to MITRE? Black Duck’s research is in the position to know of thousands of CVEs in use but not published fully in CVE. Some of these we know about from advisory feeds out of Debian and Red Hat, although not clear if they are the CNA for such CVEs.
