Checkov Secrets Framework Scanning exposes secrets in junit test output

L0 Member

We have recently starting using checkov scans in our CI/CD pipelines and have a less than stellar experience.


First the positives:

  • It is very good at finding secrets!

Now the negative...

  • When a secret is found, the secret is included in the junit output (stacktrace) in plaintext, unmasked

This therefore means secrets perfectly visible in our Azure DevOps pipelines Tests output.


We raised a TAC and the advise was to raise a feature/enhancement request - which we have done here Checkov should mask secrets | Prisma Cloud New Features Request Portal (


However, as votes are normalised by customer, 1 vote from us vs 100 votes from us is still 1 vote - so if you also think this is bad and that our enhancement request should be prioritised, please upvote the above linked Feature Request.
