ERC-7731: Vulnerability and Exposure Identifier

Currently, there is no clear, common language to specify vulnerabilities in crypto. Ethical hackers often refer to vulnerabilities using a combination of “Protocol Name + Exploit,” which can be very confusing, especially when multiple attacks occur on the same protocol.

To reduce communication costs between protocol developers and ethical hackers and build on the security practices of Web2, we propose the VE (Vulnerability and Exposure) identifier. This EIP allows any organization or individual to maintain its own VE on-chain, standardizing the language used to describe and report vulnerabilities.
