Performing a Source Code Security Scan Using git-secrets in AWS
As a Security Analyst working with AWS, you may be called upon to audit a source code repository for security vulnerabilities. In this live AWS environment, you will work with the AWS Labs’ open source
git-secrets utility to analyze a Github repository for code that contains security issues.
By the end of this learning activity, we will have created an EC2 instance, installed
git-secrets, cloned a Github repository, and scanned that source code using
git-secrets to identify security issues for remediation.
