A category in the Common Weakness Enumeration published by The MITRE Corporation.
Categories in the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) group entries based on some common characteristic or attribute.
This category identifies Software Fault Patterns (SFPs) within the Channel Attack cluster.
A capture-replay flaw exists when the design of the product makes it possible for a malicious user to sniff network traffic and bypass authentication by replaying it t...
This attack-focused weakness is caused by incorrectly implemented authentication schemes that are subject to spoofing attacks.
The product does not adequately verify the identity of actors at both ends of a communication channel, or does not adequately ensure the integrity of the channel, in a...
