Laravel Scrubber is a Laravel package to scrub sensitive information that breaks operational security policies from being leaked on accident or not by developers.

You can use this package in a few ways:

First, this package detects log messages and context patterns and scrubs them:

1Log::info('some message', [
2 'context' => 'accidental',
3 'leak_of' => [
4 'jwt' => '<insert jwt token here>'
5 ]
6]);
7 
8// testing.INFO: some message {"context":"accidental","leak_of":{"jwt": '**redacted**'}}
9 
10Log::info('<insert jwt token here>');
11 
12// testing.INFO: **redacted**

Second, you can use the scrubber directly to process data in an array and mark it as redacted:

1Scrubber::processMessage([
2 'context' => 'accidental',
3 'leak_of' => [
4 'jwt' => '<insert jwt token here>'
5 ]
6]);
7 
8// [
9// "context" => "accidental"
10// "leak_of" => [
11// "jwt" => "**redacted**"
12// ]
13// ];
14 
15Scrubber::processMessage('<insert jwt token here>');
16// **redacted**

This package also provides customization options, such as configuring the replacement message when data is scrubbed (the default is **redacted**). You can also extend the package by adding custom regex scrubbers.
