Developers on urged to be aware of potential issues from client-side cousin.
Baldwin is an expert in all things relating to Node security, heading up Node Security Project around his daily role. The key goal of this initiative is to eventually audit every single module in npm. In addition to this impressive target, the project wants to provide advisories, issues and pull requests so modules get fixed, as well as a public API and DB of audit results.
Although still in its infancy, overall, the project appears to be a welcome addition to the youthful Node-iverse. Ultimately, Baldwin and his team hope that the project will not only help improve the security of the Node landscape on a technical level, but also bolster confidence among developers and enterprises about the state of security in Node.js.
