Github repository shouldn't be public.

Explanation

Github repository should be set to be private.

You can do this by either setting private attribute to ‘true’ or visibility attribute to ‘internal’ or ‘private’.

Possible Impact

Anyone can read the contents of the GitHub repository and leak IP

Suggested Resolution

Make sensitive or commercially important repositories private

Insecure Example

The following example will fail the github-repositories-private check.

resource "github_repository" "bad_example" {
  name        = "example"
  description = "My awesome codebase"

  visibility  = "public"

  template {
    owner = "github"
    repository = "terraform-module-template"
  }
}

Secure Example

The following example will pass the github-repositories-private check.

resource "github_repository" "good_example" {
  name        = "example"
  description = "My awesome codebase"

  visibility  = "private"

  template {
    owner = "github"
    repository = "terraform-module-template"
  }
}
