    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 that get pulled into the released product via dependant/third-party 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 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.
