Project Description

Dawnscanner was a ruby code security static analyzer I created in 2013 and led until a couple of years ago. Unfortunately in my last two jobs, my focus was less on ruby code, so the project lost some traction.

Now it's time to revive the project, add some security checks and create an RPM package so it can be easily installed by our users.

Goal for this Hackweek

  • Solve issue 246: DONE
  • Solve issue 245: DONE
  • Solve issue 244: DONE
  • Marge branch kbrevampin_yaml in main and release version 2.0.0 with new KB 50% DONE: I decided not to release version 2.0.0 due some basic KB updating features
  • Move the KB in a separated repository: DONE
  • Working on a python script to parse NVD CVE information for ruby and rubygems to populate KB: DONE: 375 security checks added so far

      While working on the KB rebase, fetching data from NVD API, I suddenly realize I must change the way a vulnerable dependency must be handled. Instead of changing what is working right now, I'll add a new dependency check ruby class

      I think I won't release 2.0.0 today, as the last day of my first #hackweek but I'm super proud of achieved those goals, and really thanks for SuSE for this great opportunity. The project is definitely live again
