NVD/CVE® as JSON files

Important: this repository is now partially redundant with the CVEProject/cvelist project that allows to explore the CVE®/NVD modification history using git as well as submitting new vulnerabilities using GitHub pull requests. However, this repository is still synchronized with the dictionaries to allow to fetch each vulnerability in JSON format.


This repository contains JSON files describing vulnerabilities from the NVD and CVE® dictionaries.

It has two main goals:

  • allow to easilly get the description of a vulnerability in the JSON format (schema)
  • allow to explore CVE®/NVD modification history using git

The JSON files in this repository are generated and updated daily using the NVD's JSON feeds and Travis CI.

Data access: JSON files can also be fetched at https://olbat.github.io/nvdcve/CVE-YYYY-NNNN.json.


Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE®)

The CVE® is maintained by the Mitre Corporation.

National Vulnerabilitiy Database (NVD)

The National Vulnerability Database is the U.S. government repository of standards-based vulnerability management data represented using the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP).

It is a superset of the CVE® dictionary augmented with additional analysis, a database, and a fine-grained search engine.

Usage restrictions of this resource are described in the NVD's FAQ:

All NVD data is freely available from our XML Data Feeds. There are no fees,
licensing restrictions, or even a requirement to register. All NIST
