I was learning about CVE and went through this :
... if you own a security tool whose reports contain references to CVE IDs, you may then access fix information in a separate database that is compatible with CVE ...
I can't understand what that database related thing in that statement. I was thinking if CVE is itself vulnerabilities database but this is said to be not
Can anyone also help me understand better on that and explain:
Isn't CVE just another vulnerability database?
No. CVE is not a vulnerability database. CVE is designed to allow vulnerability databases and other capabilities to be linked together, and to facilitate the comparison of security tools and services
