Please add OWASP Dependency Check to the build (pom.xml)

    Details

      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.
