FW: FW: [CPE-DISCUSSION-LIST] Microsoft OS Naming Issue

unifiedcompliance
This is from our lead analyst who did the research on the naming issues for Microsoft.
 
Do you want us to research this further?

Hello Dorian,
 
I think Option 2 is the best option.  The mfr:product:build/version:sp suggested by Robert Neuman below I believe would make it easy to read and understand by all persons, including those who are not familiar with the nomenclature.  I found during the Microsoft research that they do have this information available on their website.  If you do a search, something will come up to give you the information that is needed.  I don't know if they have a support table for all of their products, but I did find one for Internet Explorer listing what versions and builds that they still support.  If you need more information, let me know.

Re: FW: FW: [CPE-DISCUSSION-LIST] Microsoft OS Naming Issue

Blake Frantz

By “mfr:product:build/version:sp” are we meaning:

 

microsoft:windows:CurrentVersion.CurrentBuildNumber:CSDBuildNumber

 

where CurrentVersion, CurrentBuildNumber, and CSDBuildNumber are taken from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion? Or something else?

Re: FW: FW: [CPE-DISCUSSION-LIST] Microsoft OS Naming Issue

McCormick, Christopher [USA]
I am in agreement with the proposed idea of option #2 as well.  If major.minor.build.servicepack can easily be tied back to a number structure and represented in what is currently known as the version component on CPE 2.2 I think that's a great idea.  If the version number represents all the other details behind a marketing name including editions, languages, service packs, builds, etc. why not choose that technical representation since each unique number would identify a discrete application, o/s, or hardware.
 
  I have been involved with the CPE for almost one full year now and constantly try to apply the current naming issues to other realms of business that may have had similar issues to identify distinct, unique entities.  For instance, serial bar coding or even universal product codes (UPC).   Without knowing enough about these systems I cannot comment on the history of their evolution to where they are used today but what I do know is that every single entity I purchase in a retail setting has one of these bar codes or UPC associated with it.  These bar codes and UPCs are used to differentiate from one entity to another.  The main reason I see these as successful are still used in retail is likely because each individual number representation is unique and not associated with another physical entity.
 
The reason I bring up the UPC or barcoding topic is because I'd just love to see CPE adopted to a point with vendors/developers/manufacturers at the time they make a release of a flagship product or otherwise, drop that CPE representation right on the box to distinguish what it is, systems it can run on, etc.  This vision I have with CPE being adopted at that level would also ensure (with some level of government directive maybe?) that each authoritative source be the one who represents their product, numerically.  This could eliminate the need to make inferences about a particular o/s, application, hardware because the vendor would would have a distinguished identifier that they dictate.
