Nota: Tu administrador de sitio debe habilitar el escaneo de secretos para tu instancia de GitHub Enterprise Server antes de que puedas utilizar esta característica. Para obtener más información, consulta "Configurar el escaneo de secretos en tu aplicativo."
If your project communicates with an external service, you might use a token or private key for authentication. Tokens and private keys are examples of secrets that a service provider can issue. If you check a secret into a repository, anyone who has read access to the repository can use the secret to access the external service with your privileges. We recommend that you store secrets in a dedicated, secure location outside of the repository for your project.
Escaneo de secretos will scan your entire Git history on all branches present in your GitHub repository for any secrets. Service providers can partner with GitHub to provide their secret formats for scanning. For details of the supported secrets and service providers, see "Escaneo de secretos partners."
To find out about our partner program, see "Escaneo de secretos partner program" in the Nube de GitHub Enterprise documentation
