When a front end developer works on java they use the script tags in order to import the third-party libraries. You may face a security vulnerability when you are rendering the external resources on your site. In such cases, as a safety measure, one adds integrity which is called as the sub-resource integrity – SRI code to your script. This integrity attribute will ensure that the code would not be loaded if there is manipulation at any point of time while programming.
Tests for NPM Vulnerabilities
We can secure the script using the NPM Audit command. This will help detect the vulnerabilities for all the installed dependencies. It is important that you automate it as it could be critical for several scripts. You can run the NPM audit for each of the pull request in order to identify the vulnerability. Hence this will help in the prevention of vulnerabilities that may go unnoticed.
