Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) is a public catalog of known security threats sponsored by the US Department of Homeland Security. It includes vulnerabilities and exposures that are fixable independently and affect only one codebase. Each CVE contains an identification number, a description, and public references. The CVE serves to guide enterprise security teams in understanding and mitigating potential threats to their organization. Also, a related system called the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) quantifies the severity of known vulnerabilities to help prioritize mitigation efforts.
