One of the most important topics left out by all Kubernetes introductions—how to keep secrets secret. This is the best book to understand this complicated topic.

Tobias Ammann, Ergonomics AG
Look inside
Safely manage your secret information like passwords, keys, and certificates in Kubernetes. This practical guide is full of best practices and methods for adding layers of security that will defend the critical data of your applications.

In Kubernetes Secrets Management you will find:

  • Strategies for storing secure assets in Kubernetes
  • Cryptographic options and how to apply them in Kubernetes
  • Using the HashiCorp Vault server on Kubernetes for secure secrets storage
  • Managing security with public cloud providers
  • Applying security concepts using tools from the Kubernetes ecosystem
  • End-to-end secrets storage from development to operations
  • Implementing in Kubernetes in CI/CD systems

Secrets, like database passwords and API keys, are some of the most important data in your application. Kubernetes Secrets Management reveals how to store these sensitive assets in Kubernetes in a way that’s protected against leaks and hacks. You’ll learn the default capabilities of Kubernetes secrets, where they’re lacking, and alternative options to strengthen applications and infrastructure. Discover a security-first mindset that is vital for storing and using secrets correctly, and tools and concepts that will help you manage sensitive assets such as certificates, keys, and key rotation.

about the technology

Kubernetes relies on passwords, tokens, keys, certificates, and other sensitive information to keep your system secure. But how do you keep these “secrets” safe? In this concise, practical book you’ll learn secrets management techniques that go far beyond the Kubernetes defaults.

about the book

Kubernetes Secrets Management reveals security best practices and reliable third-party tools for protecting sensitive data in Kubernetes-based systems. In this focused guide, you’ll explore relevant, real-world examples like protecting secrets in a code repository, securing keys with HashiCorp Vault, and adding layers to maintain protection after a breach. Along the way, you’ll pick up secrets management techniques you can use outside Kubernetes, as well.
