Replay: ICASI CVRF News Briefing WebcastThe Industry Consortium for Advancement of Security on the Internet (ICASI), a nonprofit association dedicated to enhancing global IT security by proactively driving excellence and innovation in security response, announced the publication of its Common Vulnerability Reporting Framework (CVRF) via a news briefing webcast on Tuesday, May 17.
Current methods of vulnerability reporting ‒ such as embedding security metric and vulnerability data inside response reports ‒ are vendor-specific, non-standard and non-cooperative. Because each producer of vulnerability reports employs a unique document structure that does not facilitate automated processing, users must manually parse individual vulnerability reports to find information that is germane to their environments.
In an effort to solve this problem, ICASI initiated the CVRF project. CVRF is an XML-based language that enables different stakeholders across different organizations to share critical security-related information in a single format ‒ speeding up information exchange and digestion.
ICASI Founding Members include Cisco Systems, Intel Corporation, International Business Machines, Juniper Networks, Microsoft Corporation and Nokia.
