General Capability Questions

Product Accessibility <CR_2.4>

Provide a short description of how and where your capability is made available to your customers and the public (required):

CWE Identifiers are assigned to Red Hat vulnerabilities with a Common Vulnerability Scoring System v2 (CVSS v2) score higher than or equal to 7. Periodically, after classifying, quantifying, and ranking these weaknesses, we direct all our efforts into dealing with these weaknesses in our products as part of our assessment services, knowledge repositories, software development practices, and education offerings.

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):

Information about the CWE List version used, reviews, and updates for the present, and the present CWE coverage for Red Hat Customer Portal are available at: https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/171613.

Map Currency Update Approach <CR_6.2>

Indicate how often you plan on updating the mappings to reflect the current CWE content and describe your approach to keeping reasonably current with the CWE content when mapping them to your repository (recommended):

The CWE coverage for Red Hat Customer Portal is reviewed and updated twice per year, along with the release of a vulnerability assessment report. CWE Identifiers are assigned to Red Hat vulnerabilities using the present CWE coverage at the time of the vulnerability assessment. Thus, references to vulnerabilities are divided into "time slices" based upon the date the vulnerability was assessed and the present CWE coverage at that time.

MAP CURRENCY UPDATE TIME <CR_6.3>

Describe how and where you explain to your customers the timeframe they should expect an update of your capability’s mappings to reflect newly available CWE content (required):

See the answer to <CR_6.1>.

Documentation Questions

DOCUMENTATION OF FINDING ELEMENTS USING CWE IDENTIFIERS <CR_5.2>

Provide a copy, or directions to its location, of where your documentation describes the specific details of how your customers can use CWE identifiers to find the individual security elements within your capability’s repository (required):

Users may use the Bugzilla search interface at: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/query.cgi, or directly refer to the "Whiteboard" field of a particular vulnerability, such as: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-XXX-XXX. Note that you need to be logged into Bugzilla to be able to see the full "Whiteboard" field.

Alternatively, users can also search in the CVE database application, such as in https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/?cwe=XXX, or individual CVE pages, such as: https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/CVE-XXX-XXX.

DOCUMENTATION OF FINDING CWE IDENTIFIERS USING ELEMENTS <CR_5.3>

Provide a copy, or directions to its location, of where your documentation describes the process a user would follow to find the CWE identifiers associated with individual security elements within your capability’s repository (required):

See the answer to <CR_5.1>.
