CPE Website is in "Archive" status — read the announcement



MITRE is pleased to announce that all intellectual property associated with CPE has been transferred to the U.S. National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST). NIST holds operational responsibility for CPE, and has hosted both the Official CPE Dictionary and the CPE Specifications for several years. MITRE will support NIST in an advisory role to ensure a smooth transfer and support their ongoing operation of CPE as needed. MITRE has assigned the copyright on all CPE material to NIST, and will no longer be enforcing the unregistered trademarks on CPE. This website will be maintained as an archive for the CPE Community, but will no longer be updated.

We thank all members of the CPE Community for your work in developing and refining CPE throughout the years. Please send any comments or concerns to cpe_dictionary@nist.gov.
