Jan 10, 2023

dotCMS, a leading content management system, has been authorized by the CVE Program as a CVE Numbering Authority (CNA), starting in 2023.

The mission of the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE®) Program is to identify, define, and catalog publicly disclosed cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

CVE is an international, shared effort that relies on over 260 community partners to discover vulnerabilities. The vulnerabilities are discovered, validated, prioritized then assigned and published to the CVE List. The CVE Records published in the catalog enable program stakeholders to rapidly discover and correlate vulnerability information used to protect systems against cybersecurity attacks. Information technology and cybersecurity professionals use CVE Records to ensure they are discussing the same issue and coordinating their efforts to prioritize and address the vulnerabilities.

"Being a CNA member will greatly assist us in protecting dotCMS products with proactive protective measures against disclosed vulnerabilities,” said Dr. Mehdi Karimi, director of cybersecurity at dotCMS.This is a big achievement in our security disclosure program, where it enables us to systematically mitigate the risks of discovered vulnerabilities.”
