The names for networked computer security vulnerabilities are standardized in MITRE's Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures dictionary. Today, more than 300 products are CVE-certified, but overall awareness of the standard for improving responses to security holes has been slow. In 2005, the US National Institute of Science and Technology launched its National Vulnerability Database. The NVD is based on the CVE standard nomenclature, and it integrates all US government and industry publicly available resources for addressing vulnerabilities. It might represent the beginning of broader CVE adoption worldwide.
