Weekly Blog Post #3

Published: 07/16/2022

Hello! My name is Anant Vijay, a sophomore pursuing Computer Science and Engineering. I will be adding support for improving the detection capabilities for CVE Binary Tool during Google Summer of Code 2022.

What did I do this week?

I spent the week adding support for a new language, namely Rust, I went through multiple Cargo.lock files in order to understand what parsing method had to be followed in order to extract the product and version information. After the parser was added I added tests for the Rust parser as well and updated the documents to reflect the newly supported language.

What is coming up next?

In the coming week I will be refactoring the remaining language parsers to the new format and fix any bugs that may be caused because of this refactor.

Did I get stuck anywhere?

I did not get stuck anywhere this week and was able to handle everything easily.
