Brian Schweigler

Hello there,

During my BSc thesis I will investigate online vulnerability databases, where I focus on the history of CVSS records and their distribution across different database providers.

In order to perform this task, I first plan to collect some background on vulnerability reporting, before I will have a look at individual entries in the CVE, and finally some peer reviewed papers to acquire a sense for the topic. I’m working under the supervision of Pascal Gadient and Prof. Dr. Oscar Nierstrasz.


  1. CVE: https://cve.mitre.org
  2. National Vulnerability Database: https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/search
  3. Background on the Current Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS): https://www.first.org/cvss/

Feel free to get in-touch for questions, concerns, or to enjoy a cup of tea together!
