Sure. How is it usually done? Sending an encrypted request to cve-assign at mitre.org <mailto:cve-assign at mitre.org> ?
What information should be included in the request?

Is there any special namedropping or reference which can be provided to speed up the process for mitre? I hear that they are quite slow these days..

My initial guess would be that it would be faster if the request came from you, since I am a “new face” to mitre.

The most important thing is that a CVE is available upon release of p9.
