Week 7: NVD CVE Retrieval API

Published: 07/21/2021

What did you do this week?
I have been working on the new NVD API to retrieve CVEs and load the cache. This will act as a backup for our current CVE retrieval and may also allow us to use incremental updates.

I worked on the asyncio library this past week.

What is coming up next?
I will be working on the incremental updates part of the code. I will also add the related documenation and tests.

Did you get stuck anywhere?
Yes, I wasn't using the asyncio library properly which led to long retreival time. It was taking me more than 30+ minutes to fetch the CVEs single time.
