AtomShields Cli is a Command-Line Interface to use the software AtomShields. AtomShields is a security testing framework for repositories and source code.

This system has different modules that detect different vulnerabilities or files that may expose a risk, and the results obtained can be obtained or sent thanks to the reporting modules.

For developers: There is also the possibility to develop your own vulnerability detection (called checkers) or reporting modules. This tool offers certain facilities for those who want to implement their own modules, publish them and integrate them into the official ElevenPaths tool.
