Bandit plugin to scan for AWS keys
This is a Bandit plugin to scan for strings in your source code that look like AWS keys.
Bandit plugins are automatically activated once they are installed. To use this plugin, you simply need to install the plugin:
$ pip install bandit-aws
To verify the installation, display the bandit help text:
$ bandit --help
It will display a list of tests that were discovered and loaded. Verify that you see “C100 - hardcoded_aws_key” in the list.
You can then run bandit in the normal way. For example:
$ bandit -r myproject/
If any strings that look like AWS keys are found, they will be reported:
>> Issue: [C100:hardcoded_aws_key] Possible hardcoded AWS secret access key: 'JalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYzEXAMPLEKEY' Severity: Medium Confidence: Medium Location: myproject/example.py:11 More Info: https://bandit.readthedocs.io/en/latest/plugins/c100_hardcoded_aws_key.html 10 AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID = "AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE" 11 AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY = "JalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYzEXAMPLEKEY" 12 13 14 class MyClass:
