This project will document a set of best practices for managing component vulnerability at three main gateways.

Gateways of Component Vulnerability

When establishing a framework for Good Component Practices, there are three gateways at which a vulnerability may occur:

  1. Selection of the component and where it came from (provenance)</li>
  2. Integration of the component into the development environment</li>
  3. Integration and maintenance of the component within the production environment</li>

We will look at each level of vulnerability and establish a series of best practices for managing the component usage at that level. The conclusion of the project will be a set of best practices for managing open source components as part of a larger application within an enterprise system.

what is this project?
Name: OWASP Good Component Practices Project (home page)
Purpose: Good Component Practice is one of the most over looked silver bullets in the Open Source arsenal. Because of business pressure, we have found that companies are willing to risk using unverified open source components, trading off security for enhanced speed in development.

This project will use community input to document an industry acceptable process for the creation, maintenance and use of open source components.
