MemberOfCategoryCategory - a CWE entry that contains a set of other entries that share a common characteristic.898SFP Primary Cluster: Authentication
HasMemberClassClass - a weakness that is described in a very abstract fashion, typically independent of any specific language or technology. More general than a Base weakness.287Improper Authentication
HasMemberBaseBase - a weakness that is described in an abstract fashion, but with sufficient details to infer specific methods for detection and prevention. More general than a Variant weakness, but more specific than a Class weakness.288Authentication Bypass Using an Alternate Path or Channel
HasMemberVariantVariant - a weakness that is described at a very low level of detail, typically limited to a specific language or technology. More specific than a Base weakness.289Authentication Bypass by Alternate Name
HasMemberBaseBase - a weakness that is described in an abstract fashion, but with sufficient details to infer specific methods for detection and prevention. More general than a Variant weakness, but more specific than a Class weakness.303Incorrect Implementation of Authentication Algorithm
HasMemberBaseBase - a weakness that is described in an abstract fashion, but with sufficient details to infer specific methods for detection and prevention. More general than a Variant weakness, but more specific than a Class weakness.304Missing Critical Step in Authentication
HasMemberBaseBase - a weakness that is described in an abstract fashion, but with sufficient details to infer specific methods for detection and prevention. More general than a Variant weakness, but more specific than a Class weakness.305Authentication Bypass by Primary Weakness
HasMemberBaseBase - a weakness that is described in an abstract fashion, but with sufficient details to infer specific methods for detection and prevention. More general than a Variant weakness, but more specific than a Class weakness.308Use of Single-factor Authentication
