Secrets Management: How to (not) help the person who hacks your servers get your data39:24 19 views 100% Published 4 months ago
Where do you store your credentials and secrets? In .env files or in environment variables, or even worse, in config files? Are your primary AWS keys shared amongst developers? Do you still have SSH keys from former employees on your servers?
If your answer is „yes“ to one or more of these questions you probably haven’t heard the term „secrets management“. In this talk, we will look into managing secrets in development and operations and expose the problems related to them. I will give you an overview of the current state of techniques to mitigate these problems and we’ll take a brief look at how an open source tool like Hashicorp Vault can provide a solution to managing secrets in the years to come.
