DescriptionAnteater is OPNFV's security gate scanner. It checks patches for secrets and security risks.


  Anteater is a CI Gate Security system that provides a series of gate verify checks which are centred on preventing sensitive information or possible malicious objects from getting merged into OPNFV repos.

  It also performs cursory checks to verify code files and documentation contain a Licence header.

  Anteater works on whitelists / blacklists that are generated using standard regular expressions, so it is possible to easily extend anteater to verify any content for any nominated string or file type, beyond even security.
