Mapping Questions

Map Currency Indication <CR_6.1>

Describe how and where your capability indicates the most recent CWE content used to create or update its mappings (required):

HP Fortify products provide CWE mappings as well as other category/taxonomy information. HP Software Security Center provides out-of-the-box reports for CWE top 25 for years 2009 and 2010.
