Abstract— Software has always been vulnerable to various vulnerably issues. Increasing the number of vulnerabilities and their complexity in the software area has made it more important to categorize them. In this research work, by selecting the MoSCoW prioritization method and by combining it with the SOM self-organizing mapping algorithm, we present a new categorization for the frequent software vulnerabilities. We implemented the proposed method in MATLAB using the relevant tool boxes. The experimental results were evaluated using in-class and out-of-class distance measurements. Classification of software vulnerabilities using OSOM algorithms gives us better results than conventional clustering methods. It can be inferred that the classification of software vulnerabilities is of particular importance in improving the security of a software application. The proposed algorithm can provide an appropriate categorization by taking advantage from the existing overlapping feature.
Keywords— Overlapping, Overlapping Self-Organizing Map, Software Vulnerability, Vulnerability Categorization.
