    Here again more than one tool exists to assist. We will highlight two of the most popular ones here: tfsec and checkov. Both provide a predefined set of checks that they use to inspect your code, allowing to explicitly open exceptions (if you really want to) by annotating your code with comments, and adjust the configuration to ignore some modules, for example.

    An additional benefit of using a CI workflow is adding automated tests. In this scenario, I’ve added a step leveraging tfsec to scan for static code vulnerabilities. In the example below, tfsec warns against creating an Azure network security rule which is fully open. This will halt and fail the workflow unless I provide an ignore comment to accept the warning.
