Storing application secrets is an important part of the security planning of any application. This is because it helps to keep sensitive information, well, secure. Secrets usually include sensitive stuff like passwords, API keys or tokens that are, in turn, used to access protected resources or perform certain operations within an application.

If this type of data is not stored securely, it becomes vulnerable to theft, misuse, or unauthorized access, which has serious consequences of unauthorized access to the actual data we are supposed to protect, financial transactions, or damage to the application’s and company’s reputation.

Keeping secrets as safe and secure as possible helps to protect the privacy and security of users, as well as the integrity of the application and its data.
