Addressing security requirements or best practices during development can often slow down developers.
WhiteSource’s Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Integrations, including support for Visual Studio, IntelliJ and Eclipse IDEs , are designed to work seamlessly within the development process, enabling developers to code more productively and securely.
When an open-source component is added to the pom.xml file, it is examined by the WhiteSource plugin.
If the component has a known vulnerability, it is marked with a “light bulb” icon.
This pane lists reported vulnerabilities associated with open source components referenced within the project’s pom.xml, including transitive dependencies.
Once a vulnerable component is detected, icons are displayed offering additional security information.
