Invitation to comment on #CSAF Common Vulnerability Reporting Framework (#CVRF) v1.2 – ends July 20th

We are pleased to announce that CSAF Common Vulnerability Reporting Framework (CVRF) Version 1.2, the first release from the OASIS Common Security Advisory Framework (CSAF) TC, is now available for public review and comment.

CVRF is a language to exchange Security Advisories and provide for greater interoperability among products by ensuring that machine-readable security advisories can be produced and consumed much more broadly. The specification builds on the Common Vulnerability Reporting Framework (CVRF) 1.1 which was initiated by ICASI, the Industry Consortium for Advancement of Security on the Internet and contributed to OASIS.

For more information on CVRF and the CSAF TC, see the press release at
