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 LogicMonitor to scan for their tokens and help secure our mutual users on public repositories. LogicMonitor tokens allow users to authenticate requests to LogicMonitor's REST API. GitHub will forward access tokens found in public repositories to LogicMonitor, which will then inform their portal contacts for remediation. You can read more information about LogicMonitor's tokens here.

All users can scan for and block LogicMonitor tokens from entering their public repositories for free with push protection. GitHub Advanced Security customers can also scan for and block LogicMonitor tokens in their private repositories.
