Common weakness enumeration (CWE) status update

  title={Common weakness enumeration (CWE) status update},
  author={Robert A. Martin and Sean Barnum},
This paper is a status update on the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) initiative [1], one of the efforts focused on improving the utility and effectiveness of code-based security assessment technology. As hoped, the CWE initiative has helped to dramatically accelerate the use of tool-based assurance arguments in reviewing software systems for security issues and invigorated the investigation of code implementation, design, and architecture issues with automation.
