Backend applications need credentials. How do you manage them?
You feel agitated. Managing application credentials separate from the source code is common sense but all the management options you know of are unfavorable in some way. Homegrown deployment strategies with half-baked security and no audit trails, a self-hosted secrets service with the accompanying maintenance nightmare or a hosted service that locks you into a single cloud provider. It seems simpler to just leave the secrets in version control. When was the last time a git repo got compromised anyway?
You know managing secrets separately drastically reduces your security risk… you just can’t find a secure solution that doesn’t overload you or limits your movement.
Let the developers do it. There should be no risk.
But what if such a solution existed? What if the development teams could manage their own app credentials without risk of accidental exposure? And what if it required no maintenance or limited your choice of cloud provider? You would have a smaller workload and no worries about application credentials.
Managing app secrets separately can increase workload and introduce risk of compromize…but it doesn’t have to.
