Bandit is a tool designed to find common security issues in Python
code. To do this Bandit processes each file, builds an AST from it, and
runs appropriate plugins against the AST nodes. Once Bandit has finished
scanning all the files it generates a report.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install bandit, simply use the following command:
