"Targeted to developers and security practitioners, the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) is a formal list of software weaknesses created to:
* Serve as a common language for describing software security weaknesses in architecture, design, or code.
* Serve as a standard measuring stick for software security tools targeting these weaknesses.
* Provide a common baseline standard for weakness identification, mitigation, and prevention efforts."
