OSInt is a big data analytics project that gathers information about vulnerabilities in third party libraries, starting from the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), and transforms it into valuable and actionable security intelligence for end users.
How it works
OSInt systematically collects and processes (extract, transform and load) large volumes of data, in the range of terabytes, from a variety of sources on the internet to gather relevant and actionable information for end users through building security knowledge base.
Due to the scale at which we operate, keeping up-to-date with the latest changes in libraries is a key challenge. For instance, NVD data feeds are updated approximately every two hours and we have to process this information and update relevant libraries in real-time to reflect the changes.
