Gitleaks is a powerful open-source tool that helps you find and eliminate sensitive information leaks in your Git repositories.

Gitleaks uses regular expressions to search for specific patterns of sensitive information. By default, it comes with a list of regular expressions that cover common secrets, but it can also be customized to match specific patterns.

One of the unique features of Gitleaks is its ability to scan not only the repository itself but also its entire commit history, making it a powerful tool for detecting information leaks that may have been committed in the past.
