The Node.js ecosystem is home to over half a million modules, but not all of these are secure, well-maintained, or up-to-date.
This rich array of building blocks can help teams solve common problems and streamline the development process. Certified Modules offers a low-friction way to protect mission-critical applications without sacrificing accelerated delivery timelines or the ability to innovate.
Quantified Trust for Untrusted CodeNodeSource calculates a trust score for every publicly-available Node.js module, using weighted criteria to evaluate reliability and integrity. With score detail information in hand, teams are empowered to make better choices based on a clear understanding of risk.
Protection Against Emerging RiskNew vulnerabilities and exploits are discovered every day, so it’s quite possible that the public code your team installed months ago is no longer safe to use—even if it was considered secure at the time of installation. Real-time scanning and alerts for each module and its dependencies keep your team aware of newly-discovered vulnerabilities, protecting your application from exposure as new threats evolve.
Enforce Compliance Without the OverheadProtect your organization from the possible legal and regulatory consequences of using third-party modules which lack a business-friendly license, or have no open source license at all. With Certified Modules, a module and its dependencies must have a permissive open source license and valid metadata in order to meet the threshold for certification.
