AboutCode is a suite of tools to uncover data ... about software and code:

Our tools are used to help detect and report the origin and license of source code, packages and binaries as well as discover software and package dependencies, and in the future track security vulnerabilities, bugs and other important software package attributes. This is a suite of command line tools, web-based and API servers and desktop applications.
