NIST invites comments on Draft NIST Internal Report (NISTIR) 8151, Dramatically Reducing Software Vulnerabilities -- Report to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. The call for a dramatic reduction in software vulnerability is heard from numerous sources, recently from the February 2016 Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan. The plan defines goals for reducing vulnerabilities in the near, mid and long term. This report addresses the first mid-term goal.
