Now, CAST Highlight subscribers can install and use a new browser extension that
allows them to see the legal and security exposures associated with a particular
open-source component as they attempt to download it from the internet.
SCA Browser Extension
new CAST Highlight SCA browser extension for Chrome enables users to tap into
CAST’s industry leading knowledgebase of over 100 million open-source components
and view insights in real time while browsing for specific components across the
internet. The extension shows details such as licensing requirements, security
vulnerabilities, and technology obsolescence directly in the browser window for
the component on the current page. It also identifies if the component belongs
to the “Allow” or “Deny” list as specified by the user’s organizational policy.
Users can now make smarter decisions about the use of specific open-source
components before downloading them from the internet.
The new SCA browser extension is available for all CAST Highlight subscribers.
