Security Feature & Permission Access Capabilities in GHAS (GitHub Advanced Security)

Customers who purchase an Advanced Security license from GitHub get access to additional security capabilities. The GHAS feature comparison and the permission access requirements for security features are also visible. 

  • For users of GitHub Enterprise, there is an add-on called GitHub Advanced Security (GHAS). 

  • The feature set for code scanning, secret scanning, and dependency review is remarkable even if it is more expensive. 

  • On, all these capabilities are by default available and cost nothing for public repositories 

  • To experiment with the functionality, you may quickly establish a repository from your personal GitHub account with some example code. 

GitHub Security overview 

  • For application security teams, technical executives, and developers that work across numerous repositories, security overview offers a centralized perspective of risk. 

  • It shows alerts for secret scanning, Dependabot, and code scanning across all the repositories you have access to in an organization or enterprise. 

  • As a result of security features not being activated, the security review also identifies areas where you may be exposed to unknown hazards. 

  • The security overview pages let you browse, filter, and arrange security warnings for repositories that belong to your team or organization. 

There are two ways to enlarge the Security Overview page: 

  1. The security overview is now available to all GitHub Enterprise accounts, not just those with GitHub Advanced Security. 

  1. The security overview is now accessible to all users inside an organization, not only administrators and security managers.

  • Not just administrators and security managers but now all members of the enterprise level can access the security overview.
