The WhiteSource application uses the alerts concept to notify users of licensing and vulnerability open-source issues. Alerts work the following way: Upon scan completion, a customer’s inventory is synchronized to WhiteSource, and the application analyzes the customer’s open-source libraries and source files and compares them to the WhiteSource knowledge base and policy definitions. If security vulnerabilities, licensing and compatibility issues, or policy violations, etc. exist, alerts are triggered for the organization.
