How to Scan a GCP Storage File for Viruses in Swift

With the ever-growing array of viruses and malware lurking in cyberspace, you never know what type of attack may be threatening your security. So, if you utilize Google Cloud Platform to store data for you or your customers, it is important to ensure the confidentiality and safety of that information. By using the following API in Swift, you will be able to scan a GCP file and its contents for viruses by leveraging a continuously updated threat database with millions of signatures.

To perform the operation, you will input the bucket name, object name, JSON credential file for Google Cloud along with your API key into the following code:

import Foundation
#if canImport(FoundationNetworking)
import FoundationNetworking
#endif
var semaphore = DispatchSemaphore (value: 0)let parameters = [
[
"key": "jsonCredentialFile",
"src": "/path/to/file",
"type": "file"
]] as [[String : Any]]
let boundary = "Boundary-\(UUID().uuidString)"
var body = ""
var error: Error? = nil
for param in parameters {
if param["disabled"] == nil {
let paramName = param["key"]!
body += "--\(boundary)\r\n"
body += "Content-Disposition:form-data; name=\"\(paramName)\""
if param["contentType"] != nil {
body += "\r\nContent-Type: \(param["contentType"] as! String)"
}
let paramType = param["type"] as! String
if paramType == "text" {
let paramValue = param["value"] as! String
body += "\r\n\r\n\(paramValue)\r\n"
} else {
let paramSrc = param["src"] as! String
let fileData = try NSData(contentsOfFile:paramSrc, options:[]) as Data
let fileContent = String(data: fileData, encoding: .utf8)!
body += "; filename=\"\(paramSrc)\"\r\n"
+ "Content-Type: \"content-type header\"\r\n\r\n\(fileContent)\r\n"
}
}
}
body += "--\(boundary)--\r\n";
let postData = body.data(using: .utf8)
var request = URLRequest(url: URL(string: "https://api.cloudmersive.com/virus/scan/cloud-storage/gcp-storage/single")!,timeoutInterval: Double.infinity)
request.addValue("<string>", forHTTPHeaderField: "bucketName")
request.addValue("<string>", forHTTPHeaderField: "objectName")
request.addValue("multipart/form-data", forHTTPHeaderField: "Content-Type")
request.addValue("YOUR-API-KEY-HERE", forHTTPHeaderField: "Apikey")
request.addValue("multipart/form-data; boundary=\(boundary)", forHTTPHeaderField: "Content-Type")
request.httpMethod = "POST"
request.httpBody = postData
let task = URLSession.shared.dataTask(with: request) { data, response, error in
guard let data = data else {
print(String(describing: error))
semaphore.signal()
return
}
print(String(data: data, encoding: .utf8)!)
semaphore.signal()
}
task.resume()
semaphore.wait()
