The CERT Guide to Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure

The CERT Guide to CVD is a comprehensive guide to the CVD process, which is the process of gathering information from vulnerability finders, coordinating the sharing of that information between relevant stakeholders, and disclosing the existence of software vulnerabilities and their mitigations to various stakeholders including the public.

Stakeholder-Specific Vulnerability Categorization (SSVC)

SSVC is a risk-based prioritization framework that provides a method for modeling decisions about vulnerability response.

The Vultron Protocol

Vultron is a protocol for Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD) that aims to provide interoperability across organizations' CVD processes. It is rooted in the CERT Guide to CVD and the SSVC framework.
