FXCopAnalyzers

Created by Microsoft, a set of analyzers, called Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.FxCopAnalyzers, that contains the most important “FxCop” rules from static code analysis, converted to Roslyn analyzers. These analyzers check your code for security, performance, and design issues, among others.

You can install these FxCop analyzers either as a NuGet package or as a VSIX extension to Visual Studio.
