Go Kit

ScanCloud powered, ready to use tooling written in Go.

The plugin is open source so you can modify as you wish.


Get the go module by simply running the commands below.

GO111MODULE=on go get github.com/secplugs/go-kit/filescan

You’ll now have the module in your $GOPATH


Usage pattern is instanciate a client and then use its methods to scan items.

Scan A File

Here, a very simple example of how to scan a file

package main

import (

func main() {
	fmt.Println("Using secplugs.com filescan")
	client := filescan.NewDefaultScanClient()

	// We will use this go source file to scan
	result, err := client.ScanFile(os.Args[0])
	if err != nil {
	fmt.Printf("%d is the score", result.Score)

Use Your Own API Key

To use additional features and the privacy of your own account, after registering with ScanCloud, sign in with your username and create an API key

After creating a key, the only change to the code sample above would be

client := filescan.NewScanClient{"your-api-key"}

Everything else remains the same.
