vDNA is the Security-Database naming scheme that provides structured enumeration of specific detailed description for a Security Alert.

The main goal of vDNA is to provide to third party system/program/website an easy way to integrate full documented CVE Alert.
Any tool integrating the XML vDNA scheme will be able to consume, identify and report all data related to a specific vulnerability.

Taking into account the benefits of SecurityMetrics standards principles, vDNA adopted most of all Open Standards (CVE, CVSS, CPE, CWE, CAPEC, OVAL) aligned with biggest security references as well as OSVDB, Milw0rm, Metasploit and Saint then cross-linked with other vendors (Microsoft bulletin and KB, US-CERT VU-CERT, Debian, Mandriva, Redhat, Cisco, Sun, Ubuntu and Gentoo ) to draw actually the most advanced security CVE feed.

Data Feeds are provided thought Secured (SSL & Encryption) API based Web-Service (served with XML) or Base64 76 Column.

vDNA provides thoses defaults informations for a given Alert :

Common Vulnerability Enumeration : CVE
Common Patern Enumeration : CPE (mitre.org)
