Detect secrets with high precision

In addition to regex and entropy analysis,

  • Leverage Semgrep’s data flow engine to understand what credentials exist and how they are being used (Semantic Analysis)

  • Prioritize valid credentials and reduce false positives using Semgrep’s post-processor

  • Detect secrets that are specific to your internal services by writing custom rules

Fix secrets without developer friction

  • Minimize developer alert fatigue from false positives

  • Get findings as pull request (PR) comments so that developers don’t have to switch contexts to fix issues

  • Use pre-commit hooks to prevent secrets from being committed to your git repository

How it works

Semgrep Secrets uses OSS + Pro Engines to find secrets specific to your code.


Semgrep Secrets can scan thousands of lines of code and look for hardcoded secrets, API keys, and other sensitive data in a few minutes using Semantic Analysis, entropy analysis, and regex.



Semgrep sends a request to the corresponding service (e.g., AWS, Slack, or GitHub) to determine if the token is still valid. This happens locally within your infrastructure; we don’t send the secret to Semgrep’s servers.



Validated secrets are surfaced to developers in their workflow as PR comments so that developers can fix them as soon as possible.

“Figmates get actionable security feedback in their PRs, while rule analytics give the security team feedback on the effectiveness of our rules. The simple syntax lets us extend Semgrep to catch new patterns, going from idea to live in an hour.”
