Manage Your Application Components and Dependencies
Applications are a big target for hackers, and if you don’t have the tools to find and fix potential vulnerabilities you’re leaving yourself exposed. But it’s not just open source components you have to be aware of. Applications today comprise more than just open source and proprietary code, they may also depend on at least one of the many thousands of external web services that are called through APIs.
How do you know which web APIs you use? Web services are easy for developers to utilize, typically free and often untracked application dependencies.
Read this Data Sheet to understand how Black Duck identifies Web Service APIs in your code and any risks potentially associated with those APIs.
