In the field of cybersecurity, CVE stands for “Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures”. CVE is a dictionary of publicly known cybersecurity vulnerabilities and exposures that are identified, named and tracked by the CVE program. The purpose of CVE is to provide a standardized naming convention and a centralized database of vulnerabilities found in software and hardware systems. By using CVE identifiers, organizations and security researchers can more easily share information about vulnerabilities and take steps to mitigate the associated risks. The CVE system is maintained by the MITRE Corporation, a nonprofit organization that operates research and development centers for the US government.
