CVE Program Expands Partnership with Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE)

INCIBE takes new role in assigning and monitoring CVE IDs.

McLean, Va., June 17, 2021—The CVE® Program announced today it is expanding its partnership with Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE) for managing the assignment of CVE Identifiers (CVE IDs) for the CVE Program.

INCIBE is now designated as a Root for Spain Organizations. As a Root for Spain Organizations, INCIBE is responsible for ensuring the effective assignment of CVE IDs, implementing the CVE Program rules and guidelines, and managing the CVE Numbering Authorities (CNAs) under its care. It is also responsible for recruitment and onboarding of new CNAs and resolving disputes within its scope.

A CNA is an organization responsible for the regular assignment of CVE IDs to vulnerabilities, and for creating and publishing information about the vulnerability in the associated CVE Record. Each CNA has a specific scope of responsibility for vulnerability identification and publishing. Currently, INCIBE and JPCERT/CC are Roots under the MITRE Top-Level Root. There are currently 173 CNAs across 29 countries actively participating in the CVE Program.

INCIBE has also extended its CNA scope responsibilities to those CVE candidates reported to INCIBE by researchers that are not within the scope of another CNA.

INCIBE’s Root designation consolidates INCIBE as a key agent of trust for the exchange of this type of information among Spanish organizations, thereby promoting a greater and better exchange of information so that all parties involved in this process can make better decisions in order to continue raising the level of cybersecurity of national companies.

Rosa Díaz, corporate general manager of INCIBE, stated, “The importance of this new role of the Institute, with public-private collaboration being one of the strategic points that will break down physical borders, which do not exist in the digital word, with the aim of detecting new vulnerabilities and strengthening cybersecurity capabilities so that our citizens and our companies are better protected.”

“The CVE Board is pleased to see INCIBE enhancing its mission of strengthening cybersecurity by stepping up their contributions to the vulnerability management community. The CVE Board welcomes INCIBE’s new role in the program as a Root CNA. We look forward to working with INCIBE in the days and years ahead,” stated Kent Landfield, a founding CVE Board member and chair of the CVE Strategic Planning Working Group.

About the CVE Program

The mission of the CVE® Program is to identify, define, and catalog publicly disclosed cybersecurity vulnerabilities. There is one CVE Record for each vulnerability in the catalog. The vulnerabilities are discovered then assigned and published by organizations from around the world that have partnered with the CVE Program. Partners publish CVE Records to communicate consistent descriptions of vulnerabilities. Information technology and cybersecurity professionals use CVE Records to ensure they are discussing the same issue, and to coordinate their efforts to prioritize and address the vulnerabilities.
