Okta Code Repositories


SUMMARY: In alignment with our core value of transparency, we are sharing context and details around a recent security event affecting Okta code repositories. There is no impact to any customers, including any HIPAA, FedRAMP or DoD customers. No action is required by customers.

SCOPE: The security event detailed below pertains to Okta Workforce Identity Cloud (WIC) code repositories. It does not pertain to any Auth0 (Customer Identity Cloud) products.

EVENT: In early December 2022, GitHub alerted Okta about possible suspicious access to Okta code repositories. Upon investigation, we have concluded that such access was used to copy Okta code repositories.

Our investigation concluded that there was no unauthorized access to the Okta service, and no unauthorized access to customer data. Okta does not rely on the confidentiality of its source code for the security of its services. The Okta service remains fully operational and secure.

As soon as Okta learned of the possible suspicious access, we promptly placed temporary restrictions on access to Okta GitHub repositories and suspended all GitHub integrations with third-party applications.

We have since reviewed all recent access to Okta software repositories hosted by GitHub to understand the scope of the exposure, reviewed all recent commits to Okta software repositories hosted with GitHub to validate the integrity of our code, and rotated GitHub credentials. We have also notified law enforcement.

We have decided to share this information consistent with our commitment to transparency and partnership with our customers.
