OSS index is free catalogue of open source components. Using public REST API it’s possible to scan your dependencies. Using Docker we can easily check our packages.

For R can be used oysteR:

more Dockerfile
FROM centos:7
RUN yum install -y epel-release
RUN yum install -y R
RUN yum install -y libcurl-devel openssl-devel
COPY audit_packages.R /usr/local/src/audit_packages.R
COPY install_packages.R /usr/local/src/install_packages.R
RUN chmod +x /usr/local/src/install_packages.R && R -f /usr/local/src/install_packages.R

print("Audit R packages")
audit = audit_installed_r_pkgs()
docker build --rm -t centos-r-image .
docker run --name centos-r-container --rm -it centos-r-image

For Python can be used ossaudit:

more Dockerfile
FROM centos:7
RUN yum install -y python3 python-pip
COPY install_packages.bash /usr/local/src/install_packages.bash
RUN chmod +x /usr/local/src/install_packages.bash && /usr/local/src/install_packages.bash
COPY audit_packages.bash /usr/local/src/audit_packages.bash
RUN chmod +x /usr/local/src/audit_packages.bash
CMD ["/usr/local/src/audit_packages.bash"]
more install_packages.bash
echo "Install Python packages"
python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip
python3 -m pip install Flask
python3 -m pip install ossaudit
more audit_packages.bash
echo -e "Show Python installed packages:\n"
python3 -m pip list --format=columns
echo -e "\nAudit Python packages:\n"
export LC_ALL
ossaudit -i
docker build --rm -t centos-python-image .
docker run --name centos-python-container --rm -it centos-python-image
