GitHub Updates Authentication, LFS

The online code-sharing service is also getting an Integrations Directory.




Building the Right Environment to Support AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning

During its GitHub Universe conference, GitHub announced several improvements to its code-sharing service, which is incredibly popular among open source developers and enterprise application development teams. First, the company announced that its authentication system will support the FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) standard. GitHub says the hardware-backed authentication technology will help combat phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks.

The company also released Git Large Files Storage (LFS) 1.0. "Distributed version control systems like Git have enabled new and powerful workflows but they haven't always been practical for versioning large files," GitHub developer Rick Olson blogged. "Git LFS solves this problem by replacing large files with text pointers inside Git while storing the file contents on a remote server like GitHub.com."

In addition, GitHub has added an Integrations Directory that will help developers find other development tools, such as Travis CI, Codeship and Gitter.
