Trufflehog3 is a popular open-source tool for detecting secrets and credentials in source code repositories.

Trufflehog3 uses regular expressions to scan for patterns that match common formats for secret keys, such as AWS keys, private keys, and other sensitive data. It can also detect secrets that have been obfuscated or encoded in various ways, making it a valuable tool for detecting even well-hidden secrets.

While Trufflehog3 is primarily used for detecting secrets and credentials, it can also be used to search for other types of sensitive data, such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII). This makes it a versatile tool for ensuring the security and privacy of your codebase.
