Table of content
This memo describes a format for security advisories. An advisory is a document describing a vulnerability of a program, an operating system or, more generally, a software or hardware component of the information system.

This specification tries to minimize changes in issuers and readers current practices (messages style). It also aims at defining a format which can be easily read by both programs and humans. It focuses on the structure of documents. This specification is primarily useful for advisories issuers such as CSIRTs [RFC2350] and users and is linked with intrusion detection.
