IBM Watson will be used by NIST to assign CVSS scores to vulnerabilities

November 6, 2018


The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is planning to use Artificial Intelligence to assign the CVSS scores to reported vulnerabilities.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) system provides a reference-method for publicly known information security vulnerabilities and exposures.

A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) score between 0.0 and 10.0 that is assigned to each flaw according to its severity. The numerical score can then be associated with a qualitative representation (such as low, medium, high, and critical) to help organizations properly assess and prioritize the issue.
