A Community Initiative

CWE is a community initiative and includes individual researchers and representatives from the organizations listed below. Each of these members is leveraging their own knowledge, interests, and expertise to help develop the CWE List.

Together, this group and any others that wish to join the effort, are creating specific and succinct definitions for each of the elements in the CWE List. By leveraging the widest possible group of interests and talents we hope to ensure that the CWE elements are adequately described and differentiated. The next steps are to adequately capture the specific effects, behaviors, exploit mechanisms, and implementation details in the CWE dictionary.
