View-1003: Weaknesses for Simplified Mapping of Published Vulnerabilities
CWE entries in this view (graph) may be used to categorize potential weaknesses within sources that handle public, third-party vulnerability information, such as the National Vulnerability Database (NVD). By design, this view is incomplete; it is limited to a small number of the most commonly-seen weaknesses, so that it is easier for humans to use. This view uses a shallow hierarchy of two levels in order to simplify the complex, category-oriented navigation of the entire CWE corpus.
This view has been modified significantly since its last major revision in 2015. This view is likely to evolve based on the experience of NVD analysts, public feedback, and the CWE Team.
