Security continues to be paramount, and inadvertently checking credentials and other secrets into source control is a major attack vector. git-secrets is a simple tool that prevents you from committing passwords and other sensitive information to a git repository. It can also scan all historical revisions before making a repository public, if you want to ensure you've never accidentally checked in a credential. git-secrets comes with built-in support for common AWS keys and credentials and can be set up quickly for other providers too.
