Remote connections to production systems are controlled with either two factor authentication or an SSH connection.
Where and only if applicable, appropriate, and technically feasible, and with the understanding GitLab is a cloud-native, fully-remote and international organization favoring a Zero Trust network without a traditional corporate network infrastructure, access will be managed with a combination of ssh and Two Factor Authentication technologies.
This control applies to all systems within our production environment. The production environment includes all endpoints and cloud assets used in hosting GitLab.com and its subdomains. This may include third-party systems that support the business of GitLab.com.
Identity access management systems should enforce SSH or 2FA for connections to production systems and networks.
