Secrets are any sensitive piece of information (like a password, API token, TLS private key) that must be kept safe. This presentation is a practical guide covering what we've done at Cloud Posse to lock down secrets in production. It includes our answer to avoid the same pitfalls that Shape Shift encountered when they were hacked. The techniques presented are compatible with automated cloud environments and even legacy systems.
