Audit log streaming is generally available

GitHub audit log streaming is now out of beta and generally available. Your experience using audit log streaming will not change, but we expanded the number of options you have for where you can stream your audit and Git events:

  • Amazon S3
  • Azure Blob Storage
  • Azure Event Hubs
  • Google Cloud Storage
  • Splunk

Enterprise owners can set up their stream in minutes by navigating to their enterprise account settings under the Audit log tab and configuring the collection endpoint.

The GitHub metadata endpoint now contains our SSH host keys.
(We'll continue offering host key fingerprints as well.)

These keys are in the OpenSSH known_hosts format for easy inclusion into existing known_hosts files.
This will make it easier to preconfigure systems which expect to connect via SSH.
For example, you can prime your CI runners with these keys before starting to fetch from GitHub.

The keys returned from the API include both SSH host keys that we're actively using, plus any that we're advertising via host key rotation for future use.
Currently, we're not offering any keys via rotation that aren't actively in use, but if we announce new host keys in the future, you can find them here as well during the rotation period.

See the meta API endpoint to learn more.
