Lightning Talk: Hiding in Plain Sight - How Flux Decrypts Secrets - Somtochi Onyekwere, Weaveworks

GitOps has been all the rage of late and it requires you to store all your YAML files in Git. This works great for YAMLs containing non-sensitive information but it gets trickier for files that contain secrets even if the repository is secret. Anyone who has or gains access to your repository can access your secret, which could include database passwords and API keys. This talk explores how Flux, with the help of projects such as Mozilla SOPS and sealed secrets, lets you encrypt your secrets and then store them as files in Git. Then, it decrypts them for you and applies them to the cluster. Flux also lets you use key management systems (KMS) in the major cloud providers so you don’t have to create the secret containing your private key in the cluster. The talk will end with a showcase of this feature in Flux using live demos and practical examples. These tools and techniques will help users to benefit from GitOps with the added security that Flux brings.
