Subject [jira] [Created] (BEANUTILS-511) Please add OWASP Dependency Check to the build (build.xml)
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2018 00:26:00 GMT
Albert Baker created BEANUTILS-511:

             Summary: Please add OWASP Dependency Check to the build (build.xml)
                 Key: BEANUTILS-511
             Project: Commons BeanUtils
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Bean / Property Utils, Bean-Collections, ConvertUtils &amp; Converters,
DynaBean, Expression Syntax, Locale BeanUtils / Converters
    Affects Versions: 1.9.4, 2.0.0
         Environment: All development, build, test, environments.
            Reporter: Albert Baker

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 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.
