Common Weakness Risk Analysis Framework (CWRAF™)
CWRAF provides a framework for scoring software weaknesses in a consistent, flexible, open manner, while accommodating context for the various business domains. It is a collaborative, community-based effort that is addressing the needs of its stakeholders across government, academia, and industry. CWRAF is a part of the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE™) project, co-sponsored by the Software Assurance program in the office of Cybersecurity and Communications of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
CWRAF and CWSS allow users to rank classes of weaknesses independent of any particular software package, in order to prioritize them relative to each other (e.g., "buffer overflows are higher priority than memory leaks"). This approach, sometimes referred to as a "Top-N list," is used by the CWE Top 25, OWASP Top Ten, and similar efforts. CWRAF and CWSS allow users to create their own custom Top-N lists.
