Subject [jira] [Created] (REEF-2043) Please add OWASP Dependency Check to the build (pom.xml)
Date Wed, 15 Aug 2018 03:27:00 GMT
Albert Baker created REEF-2043:

             Summary: Please add OWASP Dependency Check to the build (pom.xml)
                 Key: REEF-2043
             Project: REEF
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Build infrastructure
         Environment: All development, build, test, environments.
            Reporter: Albert Baker
             Fix For: 0.17

 Please add OWASP Dependency Check to the build (pom.xml).  OWASP DC makes an outbound REST
call to MITRE Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures (CVE) to perform a lookup for each dependant
.jar to list any/all known vulnerabilities for each jar.  This step is needed because a manual
MITRE CVE lookup/check on the main component does not include checking for vulnerabilities
in components or in dependant libraries.

OWASP Dependency check : has plug-ins
for most Java build/make types (ant, maven, ivy, gradle).   

Also, add the appropriate command to the nightly build to generate a report of all known vulnerabilities
in any/all third party libraries/dependencies that get pulled in. example : mvn -Powasp -Dtest=false
-DfailIfNoTests=false clean aggregate

Generating this report nightly/weekly will help inform the project's development team if any
dependant libraries have a newly discovered & reported (known) vulnerailities.  Project
teams that keep up with removing known vulnerabilities on a weekly basis will help protect
businesses that rely on these open source componets.
