Keeping Secrets in your Code

While in general it’s a bad idea to add passwords and other secrets to your version control system, it’s a reasonably common practice in the world of “Infrastructure as Code”. This talk will provide a brief introduction to Gnu Privacy Guard (gpg), and how it can be used to safely encrypt secrets only shared with a select audience.

Whether you choose to commit those secrets to your version control is up to you.
