Welcome to the UC Berkeley GitHub Enterprise Service!
This is a private instance of GitHub that is operated by the Engineering and Integration Services team within Information Services Technology (IST). It is offered as a centrally funded service to UC Berkeley Campus staff, faculty, students and affiliates. GitHub@Berkeley, like the original GitHub site, is self-service and self-supported. This service is supported under the terms in the GitHub@Berkeley SLA.
GitHub@Berkeley is only intended to store data that falls under Data Protection Level P2 (formerly UCB PL0 and PL1) classification. It should not be used to store sensitive data, including (but not limited to):
- Authentication credentials that would allow someone to gain access to a system that normally requires a username/password, or other credential
- Sensitive information about configurations, topologies or security protocols that may provide information for an unauthorized user to compromise protected systems
- Personal, private and confidential information related to health, medical, financial or credit information
- Personal information that could lead to identity theft, such as driver's license numbers, social security numbers or your personal ID number on your Cal 1 card
- Unsecure or non-anonymized research data that includes PII which may result in the compromise of test subject privacy or confidentiality requirements
Users are responsible for the security and privacy of their own content through thoughtful use of Github Enterprise security/privacy settings and consideration of what content is appropriate to store in the service.
GitHub@Berkeley is not intended as a file storage/sharing service - view available options at bConnected. Files larger than 100MB will not be accepted for checkin/commit and we request that users keep their overall repository size under 1GB. Please see the guidelines published by github.
