Subject [jira] [Created] (TAVERNA-1052) Please add OWASP Dependency Check to the build (pom.xml)
Date Sun, 05 Aug 2018 05:01:00 GMT
Albert Baker created TAVERNA-1052:

             Summary: Please add OWASP Dependency Check to the build (pom.xml)
                 Key: TAVERNA-1052
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAVERNA-1052
             Project: Apache Taverna
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Taverna Common Activities, Taverna Engine, Taverna Server, Taverna Workbench
         Environment: All development, build, test, environments.
            Reporter: Albert Baker
             Fix For: workbench 3.1.0, common activities 2.2.0, engine 3.2.0, server 3.2.0

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 : https://www.owasp.org/index.php/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 reported known vulnerailities.  Project teams that keep up with
removing vulnerabilities on a weekly basis will help protect businesses that rely on these
open source componets.
