Managing infrastructure requires you to coordinate interactions between applications and individuals. Enabling secure communication between the two relies on a number of systems trusting one another. In practice, this means distributing keys, passwords, and certificates. Handling these secrets securely can definitely be a challenge. In this webinar, Franklin Webber, a training and technical content lead at Chef, will explain why it is important to manage secrets and how you can do it with Chef and tools such as encrypted data bags and Chef Vault. When you're done, you'll see why security through encryption is preferable to security through obscurity, be able to safely manage secrets with Chef, and know where to go to learn even more.
