SOPS

Practice makes perfect


SOPS

Secrets OPerationS is a tool that is able to manage secrets by using a Key Management Store like AWS KMS. The GitHub README provides instructions how to get started with SOPS.

I created two keys in KMS, exported them by issuing:

export SOPS_KMS_ARN="arn1,arn2"

and subsequently I followed the README instructions and created my first encrypted file using SOPS:

sops some-file.yml

When one opens this file, an encrypted content will be returned.
