Product Integration using NVD CVSS Calculators

Organizations that have created CVSS compatible products may integrate with the NVD CVSS calculators by creating a hyperlink that includes the CVSS vector or, optionally, the CVE-ID. This works for base, temporal, and environmental metrics within a vector string. Examples of how this can be done have been provided below. 

NOTE: If you provide a CVE-ID and a CVSS vector string, the vector string provided must match the vector string stored within the NVD. If the vector string provided does not match the vector string stored in the NVD, a warning banner will display and the NVD vector string will be displayed instead. This means that when stipulating a CVE ID only base metrics can be provided.
