WhiteSource Releases Tool to Evaluate Security of Open Source Components
Wednesday, June 08, 2016
WhiteSource has launched a new Selection Tool plug-in providing developers with the ability to identify vulnerable or problematic open source components at the early stages of coding. The browser plug-in allows developers to see full information about specific libraries they wish to use and check if the components meet their company’s open source policies.
The new Selection Tool saves developers time as provides the ability to quickly and check the security and quality of open source components in real-time, without the need to leave their browser window.
The Selection Tool is a browser plug-in that detects a viewed component in a web repository, based on the URL, and cross reference it with WhiteSource’s database and a company’s open source inventory to provide all relevant information to help a developer decide whether they should choose the component or not. The Selection Tool enables developers to know in real-time if the component has security, licensing or quality issues, and if the component is going to pass the organizational policy, or is already in use.
