Cupertino, November 21, 2019 – OTRS AG is now the “CVE Numbering Authority” (CNA) for all OTRS products. This means that the OTRS Security Team is the central point of contact for all OTRS and ((OTRS)) Community Edition software. The team is able to directly assign a CVE number to the vulnerability found.

The aim of CVE numbering is to facilitate the exchange of information about vulnerabilities through precise numbering. Often, the same vulnerability may be given multiple names by different companies and institutions; giving a single vulnerability a unique number allows it to be clearly identified by all.

“We are pleased to meet Mitre’s requirements, which build on our proven vulnerability management processes. The training and the concluding test were practice-oriented and helped us to implement final fine-tuning of the processes,” reports Jens Bothe, Director Global Consulting and security expert at OTRS AG.

The OTRS Security Team can be reached at this email address: security@otrs.com.
