Simple, secure, account and credential management
Simple and secure account management
Yaml files containing confidential information can be encrypted for use inside of acct base applications. This is an example of what an acct credentials file might look like.
provider: profile_name: username: XXXXXXXXXXXX password: XXXXXXXXXXXX api_key: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Next use the acct command to encrypt this file using the fernet algorithm:
$ acct encrypt credentials.yml YeckEnWEGOjBDVxxytw13AsdLgquzhCtFHOs7kDsna8=
The acct command can also be used to decrypt the encrypted file:
$ acct decrypt credentials.yml.fernet --output=yaml --acct-key="YeckEnWEGOjBDVxxytw13AsdLgquzhCtFHOs7kDsna8="
The fernet plugin is the default for encryption, but other plugins may be added. To use the AES plugin change the previous commands to:
$ acct encrypt --crypto-plugin aesgcm256 credentials.yml YeckEnWEGOjBDVxxytw13AsdLgquzhCtFHOs7kDsna8= $ acct decrypt --crypto-plugin aesgcm256 credentials.yml.aesgcm256 --output=yaml --acct-key="YeckEnWEGOjBDVxxytw13AsdLgquzhCtFHOs7kDsna8="
