GitHub secret scanning protects users by searching repositories for known types of secrets. By identifying and flagging these secrets, our scans help prevent data leaks and fraud.

We have partnered with Zuplo to scan for their API keys connected to a Zuplo API Gateway, which allows users to add API key authentication to their APIs. We'll forward access tokens found in public repositories to Zuplo, who follow customer preference to either notify their customers via email or automatically revoke the token. More information about Zuplo API tokens can be found here.

We continue to welcome new partners for public repository secret scanning. GitHub Advanced Security customers can also scan their private repositories for leaked secrets and prevent Zuplo keys from accidental leaks with push protection.
