Modern software products and systems are composed of up to 80% open source components. Software development teams face tremendous challenges tracking all open source and third-party components, including dependencies and compliance obligations – legacy spreadsheets can longer manage the high volume and rate of change.
Managing open source components – especially their licensing and provenance – is a critical part of the Software Composition Analysis (SCA) process. SCA is now a pre-requisite for modern organizations to comply with mandated Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) and other regulations. Automating FOSS compliance is essential to ensure software supply chain integrity.
Discover open source components in your software with ScanCode, the leading open source code scanning engine, used and trusted by 4 of the 5 Big Tech companies:
Identify any open source components and their license compliance data in an application codebase.
Generate an inventory of components and their licenses to use as the baseline for your FOSS compliance process.
100% open source under Apache 2.0 and other business-friendly licenses with support for all programming languages and environments.
The explosion of FOSS usage across industries requires a new approach to efficiently identify FOSS security vulnerabilities – one based on open data and FOSS tools, not proprietary and privately maintained databases built for proprietary software components.
VulnerableCode is a FOSS tool to automate search for FOSS security vulnerabilities, utilizing a free and open database of FOSS package vulnerabilities.
By collecting and parsing data from many sources, identifying packages with a standardized package-url, and accessing the data through a REST API, VulnerableCode addresses key security concerns for using FOSS code in modern applications.
scancode-licensedb is a data repository of over 1700 licenses detected by ScanCode
package-url is the emerging standard for identifying software packages
container-inspector is a suite of analysis tools for Docker images, OCI images and Dockerfiles
license_expression is a utility to parse, normalize and compare license expressions (SPDX)
Track all components.
