A typical vulnerability scoring system is Common Vulnerability Scoring System(CVSS). However, since CVSS does not differentiate among the individual vulnerability impact of the asset and give higher priority for the more important assets, it is impossible to respond effectively and quickly to high-risk vulnerabilities on large systems. We propose a Layered weight based Vulnerability impact assessment Scoring System which can hierarchically group the importance of assets and weight the number of layers and the number of assets to effectively manage the impact of vulnerabilities on a per asset basis.
