Automated testing for your YARA rules

Make sure your YARA rules are correct and effective by testing them automatically as soon as you submit them to your GitHub repository.

Rules validation

With YARA-CI you won't submit invalid rules to your repository anymore. You will get a detailed report with the issues found, including warnings about potentially bad performance rules.

Detection of false positives

False positives are a common issue with YARA rules. If your rules are not properly designed they can detect files that you didn't intend to detect, including widely distributed files belonging to popular operating systems or software packages.

YARA-CI helps you to detect poorly designed rules by scanning a corpus of more than 1 million files extracted from the National Reference Software Library, a collection of well-known, traceable files maintained by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
