---------------------------------------

             Summary: Add OWASP dependency checker to detect security vulnerabilities in third
party libraries
                 Key: SOLR-11207
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-11207
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Task
      Security Level: Public (Default Security Level. Issues are Public)
    Affects Versions: 6.0
            Reporter: Hrishikesh Gadre


Lucene/Solr project depends on number of third party libraries. Some of those libraries contain
security vulnerabilities. Upgrading to versions of those libraries that have fixes for those
vulnerabilities is a simple, critical step we can take to improve the security of the system.
But for that we need a tool which can scan the Lucene/Solr dependencies and look up the security
database for known vulnerabilities.

I found that [OWASP dependency-checker|https://jeremylong.github.io/DependencyCheck/dependency-check-ant/]
can be used for this purpose. It provides a ant task which we can include in the Lucene/Solr
build. We also need to figure out how (and when) to invoke this dependency-checker. But this
can be figured out once we complete the first step of integrating this tool with the Lucene/Solr
build system.
