The Xen Project has in-principle agreement to become a CVE Numbering Authority. However to do this, we need to define the scope of the CNA. A number of have worked on this, but we need some community inout.

Consolidate Security Coverage Documents
Consolidate security coverage documents where possible (we have a proposal). Specifically
  • Review the proposal (currently in a google doc - export attached) 
  • Review the scope (currently in a google doc) - this may involve clarifying the supported status of some components 

Once we have agreement, we basically just need to document the outcome, publish it and get the process started.

Other Operational Issues

Possible/Proposed Process Changes?

  • Bundling of issues / once every other week or monthly XSA publication?
  • Include maintainers on pre-disclosure when affected and not on security team
