CQE Presentation Context

The Common Quality Enumeration (CQE) addresses the quality issues that CWE doesn’t cover.  The CQE collection will be provided publicly and vendors will subsequently adopt CQE Identifiers as part of their respective tool's findings reports. By having a single community driven "dictionary" of the non-security quality issues (complementing the security issues in CWE) there will now be the ability to correlate findings across and amongst tools – and tools will be better able to describe the issues they cover and planned for filling gaps.  CQE also addresses the remaining 7 aspects of quality (families), as illustrated by the CISQ specifications, which CWE doesn’t address.  CQE is not limited to software and also covers hardware and firmware.  MITRE will maintain the CQE database and integrity building upon our success in CWE and CVE.  We are looking for researchers, tool vendors, and practitioners to work with us to build the database.
