B109: Test for a password based config option not marked secret

Passwords are sensitive and must be protected appropriately. In OpenStack Oslo there is an option to mark options “secret” which will ensure that they are not logged. This plugin detects usages of oslo configuration functions that appear to deal with strings ending in ‘password’ and flag usages where they have not been marked secret.

If such a value is found a MEDIUM severity error is generated. If ‘False’ or ‘None’ are explicitly set, Bandit will return a MEDIUM confidence issue. If Bandit can’t determine the value of secret it will return a LOW confidence issue.

Config Options:

        - oslo.config.cfg.StrOpt
        - oslo_config.cfg.StrOpt
