    • 2 Factor authentication on GitHub (Chris)
      • attempted security break-ins, including botnet trying passwords against GitHub user accounts
      • Chris’ GitHub account was frozen due to large number of attack attempts
      • big concern over admin rights over repositories, and access to internal repositories
        • so such users are the first concern
      • two-factor authentication is a nice solution available from GitHub
      • SSH keys still work as before for pushing with git, etc.
        • but please do only use SSH keys that have a passphrase
        • SSH key chain commands will probably reveal which have passphrases
          • Chris will post something about how to tell
      • user + password will not work with scc (perhaps even pygithub) at present
        • tokens should be okay
