These days software products rely heavily on open-source components that are associated with the increased security, licensing compliance and quality risks. In this What&Why article, we are going to explain what binary software component analysis is and how important it is to implement it in your business to reduce the risks linked to the use of open source libraries.

What is Binary Software Component Analysis?

Software Component Analysis is a an automated process to identify open source components in a codebase. As soon as a component is identified (scanned), it turns possible to connect that component to known security disclosures and identify known vulnerabilities.

Binary Software Component Analysis is a form of static analysis that deals only with the binary executable of an application without visibility into the source code. Binary Software Component Analysis is used when access to the source code is not possible but there is a need to assess potential vulnerabilities of an application.

The Need for SCA Tools in Organizations

Motivation behind implementation of SCA tool in the organization:

Software Composition Analysis tools generate a complete SBoM that tracks third-party and open source components and identifies known security vulnerabilities, associated licenses, and code quality risks.

The main functions of Software Composition Analysis tools implemented in the organizations:
