About GitHub Advanced Security

GitHub has many features that help you improve and maintain the quality of your code. Some of these are included in all plans, such as dependency graph and Dependabot alerts. Other security features require a GitHub Advanced Security license to run on repositories apart from public repositories on GitHub.com.

For information about buying a license for GitHub Advanced Security, see "About billing for GitHub Advanced Security."

About Advanced Security features

A GitHub Advanced Security license provides the following additional features:

  • Code scanning - Search for potential security vulnerabilities and coding errors in your code. For more information, see "About code scanning."

  • Secret scanning - Detect secrets, for example keys and tokens, that have been checked into the repository. If push protection is enabled, also detects secrets when they are pushed to your repository. For more information, see "About secret scanning" and "Protecting pushes with secret scanning."

  • Dependency review - Show the full impact of changes to dependencies and see details of any vulnerable versions before you merge a pull request. For more information, see "About dependency review."

Deploying GitHub Advanced Security in your enterprise

To learn about what you need to know to plan your GitHub Advanced Security deployment at a high level and to review the rollout phases we recommended, see "Adopting GitHub Advanced Security at scale."

Enabling Advanced Security features

For public repositories these features are permanently on and can only be disabled if you change the visibility of the project so that the code is no longer public.

For other repositories, once you have a license for your enterprise account, you can enable and disable these features at the organization or repository level. For more information, see "Managing security and analysis settings for your organization" and "Managing security and analysis settings for your repository."

If you have an enterprise account, license use for the entire enterprise is shown on your enterprise license page. For more information, see "Viewing your GitHub Advanced Security usage."

About starter workflows for Advanced Security

注: Advanced Security のスターター ワークフローは、リポジトリの [アクション] タブの [セキュリティ] カテゴリに統合されています。 この新しい構成は現在ベータ版であり、変更される可能性があります。

GitHub Enterprise Cloud には、code scanning などのセキュリティ機能用のスターター ワークフローが用意されています。 ゼロから始めるのではなく、これらの推奨されるワークフローを使用して、code scanning ワークフローを作成できます。

For more information on starter workflows, see "Setting up code scanning using starter workflows" and "Using starter workflows."
