Project description

Takara is a secure secrets store. Takara differs from other secret stores in that it supports progressive usage. Secret stores need to be easy to use and easy to start with, but able to scale from easy local security all the way up to enterprise and military level security. If someone starts with something simple, it is optimal if it can scale all the way up.

Simple Usage Tutorial

Getting started with Takara is easy, it has a lot of options but you don’t need to know them! In fact you only need to know that takara stores encrypted data in a hierarchy, so data has a location, just like a file on a filesystem.


We will just need to install the basic takara for this to work:

pip install takara

Create a Crypt Store

Takara stores encrypted data in units. This allows you to have separate units that store separate data, these unit can even be used to store data in different storage systems with different access systems.

But we don’t need to worry about that now! We just need to make our first unit! If you don’t tell it what to name the unit, then the unit will default to being called main. Lets make the main unit now:

takara create

This will create a secure store that is password protected. The command will prompt you for the password that you wish to use to secure the secrets.

Set a Value

Now that we have a unit set up we can set a value inside it. Just tell takara to chose a path for the unit to be stored and the data to be stored in said unit.

takara set -p my/secret -s 'The speed of an unladen swallow...'

Done! Now the encrypted secret is secure inside of takara.

Get the Value

Getting the value out is just as easy:

takara get -p my/secret

Now the plain text of the secret is presented back!
