CWE Program Lead Alec Summers talks with Red Hat’s Przemyslaw Roguski, CWE Technical Lead Steve Christey, and CWE Top 25 Lead Connor Mullaly, about Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE™) and the problem it solves; how Red Hat’s experience and relationship with CWE began and developed over time; how Red Hat uses CWE today, especially “CWE-699: Software Development”; how CWE’s different “views” can be used to educate and enable new and/or existing CWE users; CWE mappings and why mapping to CWEs/root cause weaknesses is important in vulnerability disclosure; the CWE Top 25 list; CWE in the software development lifecycle; how ongoing development of CWE benefits users; and more.

Additional details about Red Hat’s ongoing use of CWE are included in these two articles on the Red Hat blog, “Red Hat’s CWE journey” and “Weakness risk-patterns: A Red Hat way to identify poor software practices in the secure development lifecycle.”

In this episode, we talk with Cisco’s Tim Wadhwa-Brown, Security Research and Offensive Security for Professional Services in Europe and Jared Pendleton, Advanced Security Initiatives Group about how Cisco uses CWE for finding and fixing vulnerabilities. They find it useful to help categorize the types of vulnerabilities to help determine the root cause of possible future vulnerabilities.
