Introduction to Kiuwan Insights
Many applications incorporate external open source and third-party components that enable developers to build new functionality quickly and efficiently. But while the use of open source components has many benefits, it also introduces risk. Kiuwan Insights helps you manage this risk by providing answers to the key questions described below.
Kiuwan Insights comes to answer all these questions by providing:
Kiuwan Insight analyzes your application software, discovering all external dependencies, and builds a components inventory that lets you track any external piece of code that could be part of your application.
Go to Insights > Components to access the components inventory.
Supported languages and resources
Kiuwan Insights uses the following resources to extract information on 3rd party dependencies.
From these sources, Kiuwan Insight builds the Components Inventory of your application.
You can add your specific private (local or remote) and/or public repositories by properly configuring Kiuwan Local Analyzer.
Please visit Insights - Additional Maven repositories for further information.
Security, Obsolescence, and Licensing
At a glance, Kiuwan Insights provides detailed information and visual indicators that quickly let you know the different levels of risk associated with every external component.
Every component is assigned a level (High, Medium, Low or None) on three different risk metrics:
- Security Risk (due to vulnerabilities introduced by components)
- Obsolescence Risk (due to using obsolete components)
- License Risk (due to legal implications of used components’ licenses)
