All scanners integrated in the secureCodeBox create a JSON-Array of Findings objects. The 'findings.json' file that contains these Findings complies with the following JSON Schema (Draft-04).

{  "$schema": "",  "type": "array",  "description": "Array of Findings.",  "items": {    "$ref": "#/$defs/finding"  },  "$defs": {    "finding": {      "type": "object",      "additionalProperties": true,      "properties": {        "id": {          "description": "The unique identifier for a Finding according to RFC4122.",          "type": "string",          "format": "uuid"        },        "identified_at": {          "description": "Date-Time when the Finding was exactly identified according to ISO8601. This information will often not be present.",          "type": "string",          "format": "date-time"        },        "parsed_at": {          "description": "Date-Time when the Finding was parsed according to ISO8601. This information will always be present.",          "type": "string",          "format": "date-time"        },        "name": {          "description": "Contains a short description of the Finding.",          "type": "string"        },        "description": {          "description": "In depth description, can span multiple paragraphs.",          "type": "string",          "nullable": true        },        "category": {          "description": "Is often used to group finding based on their types.",          "type": "string"        },        "severity": {          "description": "Indicates the severity of the finding.",          "type": "string",          "enum": [            "INFORMATIONAL",            "LOW",            "MEDIUM",            "HIGH"          ]        },        "attributes": {          "description": "Attributes are not standardized.
