GitHub Secret Scanning scans repositories for known types of secrets, to prevent fraudulent use of secrets that were committed accidentally. This protects users from fraud and data leaks.

Contributed Systems provides open source and commercial background job systems (Sidekiq and Faktory) for business applications written in a variety of programming languages, including Ruby, Go, Python, and JavaScript. If your Contributed Systems credentials are committed to a public repository, we'll send those matches to them and they'll reach out to you directly.

We continue to welcome new partners for public repo secret scanning. In addition, GitHub Advanced Security customers can also scan their private repositories for leaked secrets.
