Google has open-sourced the Allstar tool that can be used to secure GitHub projects by enforcing a set of security policies to prevent misconfiguration.

“Allstar is a GitHub App installed on organizations or repositories to set and enforce security policies. Its goal is to be able to continuously monitor and detect any GitHub setting or repository file contents that may be risky or do not follow security best practices.” reads the project description. “If Allstar finds a repository to be out of compliance, it will take an action such as create an issue or restore security settings.”
