audit-filter

crates.io version Build Status npm version

audit-filter takes the output of npm audit --json and an nsp rc config file without comments and filters out advisories according to the nsp offline exceptions format (see usage for an example).

This provides a migration path from nsp check to npm audit and lets projects to use npm audit in CI pipelines without masking all advisories (e.g. with npm audit || true).

Install

Requirements

  • node 8.x or 10.x
  • npm@6 (for --json support and newer package-lock.json format)

Local NPM package

  1. Run npm install --save-dev audit-filter to add it as a dev dependency

  2. Require an npm version with npm audit support in package.json e.g.

{
  ...
  "engines": {
    "node": ">=8",
    "npm": ">=6.4.1"
  },
  ...
}
  1. Add an empty exceptions file named .nsprc:
{
  "exceptions": [
  ]
}
  1. Optionally, add an npm script command:
{
  "scripts": {
    "lint:deps": "npm audit --json | audit-filter --nsp-config=.nsprc --audit=-"
	...
  }
  ...
  "devDependencies": {
    "audit-filter": "0.3.0"
  },
  ...
}

and test it with: npm run lint:deps or npm run-script lint:deps

  1. Optionally, set "The minimum level of vulnerability for npm audit to exit with a non-zero exit with npm config audit level ('low', 'moderate', 'high', 'critical')

Global NPM package

npm install -g audit-filter

Cargo

cargo install audit-filter

Usage

Note: all commands run from the project root

$ audit-filter -h
audit-filter filters the output of "npm audit --json"

Usage:
  audit-filter [--json] [--audit=<->] [--nsp-config=<.nsprc>]
  audit-filter (-h | --help | --version)

Options:
  -h --help                       Show this screen.
  --version                       Show version.
  --json                          Output subset of JSON for the unfiltered advisories as an array.
  --audit=<audit>                 NPM Audit JSON file [default: -].
  --nsp-config=<config>           Default filter config [default: .nsprc].
