National Vulnerability Database (NVD)

NVD is the U.S. government repository of standards based vulnerability management data represented using the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). This data enables automation of vulnerability management, security measurement, and compliance. NVD includes databases of security checklists, security related software flaws, misconfigurations, product names, and impact metrics. NVD supports the Information Security Automation Program (ISAP).

Federal Desktop Core Configuration settings (FDCC) NVD contains content (and pointers to tools) for performing configuration checking of systems implementing the FDCC using the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). FDCC Checklists are available here (to be used with SCAP FDCC capable tools). SCAP FDCC Capable Tools are available here.
