OpenStack security / automated python testing


Is anyone in the OpenStack community using automated tools to perform code analysis?

If not, are you familiar with such tools that will work with python? We're specifically interested in tools that can be used to provide rapid feedback to developers about potentially dangerous code (for example, SQL statements that are not scrubbed, query strings that are not properly validated). I've used such tools in the past for PHP and other languages, but I'm kind of at a loss when it comes to python.

What we'd really like to see is for someone to pick up the "security" task and run with it, with regular penetration testing and detailed analytics so that we can ensure that OpenStack products are reliably secure. Automated code testing is an early step in that process.
