My question is barely simple and due to the fact that I didn't found out any information about that on the web :

What is the best way to cite CVE (site) entries in latex with Bibtex? Are they any dictionaries referencing them all, as we can have for RFC (site)?

Furthermore, are they any standards for such citations?

For example, if I may wish to cite the CVE 2014-0160 or any else, is there any librairy including it already -that I could cite-, or may I write them all by hand when I want to quote a CVE ?

    You might use the "catch-all" @misc entry type. – Mico May 13 '14 at 10:19
  • @Mico Do you mind explaining a bit more what you mean please ? – enigmator May 13 '14 at 11:30
  • The CVEs can have 4 to 7 digit identifiers. It would help if you provided a specific example of a CVE you wish to cite. – Mico May 13 '14 at 12:43
  • @Mico I updated my question, do not hesitate to ask me to clarify if necessary. – enigmator May 13 '14 at 14:27

In APA, the CVE list could be qualified as a database. For Example:

  title = {{CVE}-2014-0160.},
  howpublished = "Available from MITRE, {CVE-ID} {CVE}-2014-0160.",
  month=dec # "~3",
  year = {2013},
  url={http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0160 },
  urldate={19 April 2015}
