Abstract: The identification of component vulnerability is an important criterion for securing the networks and it is an open issue for Software Defined Network (SDN). The provides an open tool namely Common Vulnerability Scoring system for identification of component vulnerability, but there is no distinctive correspondence between CVSS and SDN. With this paper, we try to identify such correspondence so that it will help network researchers to determine the network vulnerability and improve the SDN security soon. This paper also includes a comparison between the last three CVSS versions. For this comparison, one can understand what are the new features CVSS incorporating for identifying new vulnerabilities in the emerging environment.
