roave/security-advisories is a PHP library that prevents installation of Composer packages with known security vulnerabilities: no API, simply require it. This means that roave/security-advisories keeps known security vulnerabilities out of your project.

roave/security-advisories means you don't have to install and run an additional CLI tool for something that Composer can provide directly.

What does that mean?

roave/security-advisories compiles a list of conflict versions from into a composer metapackage, which has tons of advantages, like:

  • No files or actual dependencies are added to the project
  • Packages with security issues are filtered out during dependency resolution
  • No more CLI tool to run separately, no more CI setup steps
  • No need to upgrade the roave/security-advisories separately
  • No coupling or version constraints with any dependencies used by similar CLI-based alternatives

roave/security-advisories has been downloaded more than 9 million times.

You can learn more about roave/security-advisories in this blog post written by the creator.
