Description: GitHub Enterprise is the on-premises version of GitHub. GitHub Enterprise is designed for use by large-scale enterprise software development teams where the enterprise wishes to host their repositories behind a corporate firewall. With GitHub Enterprise, code collaboration and review are built into the development process. Teams can share work, discuss changes, and get feedback all in one place.

This technology has been deployed in VA`s on-premises Enterprise Cloud (VAEC) environment servers, in a private cloud. Approval of cloud services and cloud based products is not in the purview of the TRM. For information on cloud services and cloud based product approval, please see the ECS Portal at: https://vaww.portal.va.gov/sites/ECS/SitePages/Home.aspx.

This entry pertains only to the Enterprise Github server software installed on the VA network. It does not apply or include the variety of desktop clients or additional plugins that are compatible to Enterprise Github. Their approval status are tracked separately in the TRM.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant.

Decision Constraints: Due to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) identified security vulnerabilities, extra vigilance should be applied to ensure the versions remain properly patched to mitigate known and future vulnerabilities. The local ISO can provide assistance in reviewing the NIST vulnerabilities.

Due to potential information security risks, cloud based technologies may not be used without the approval of the VA Enterprise Cloud Services (ECS) Group. This body is in part responsible for ensuring organizational information, Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), and VA sensitive data are not compromised. (Ref: VA Directive 6004, VA Directive 6517, VA Directive 6513 and VA Directive 6102).
