RustSec: rustsec crate

Latest Version Docs Build Status Safety Dance MSRV Apache 2.0 OR MIT licensed Project Chat

Client library for accessing the RustSec Security Advisory Database: fetches the advisory-db (or other compatible) git repository and audits Cargo.lock files against it.



The rustsec crate is primarily intended to be used by the cargo-audit crate for the purposes of identifying vulnerable crates in Cargo.lock files.

However, it may be useful if you would like to consume the RustSec advisory database in other capacities.
