      Description

      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.
