Handling Secrets with AWS

By Corey Quinn

You want to find a way to maturely and sensibly store those secrets in ways that are centralized (so you don’t have to update every server / container / function whenever one changes), secure (so they remain secret), and accessible (in practice, there’s little difference between a service going down and you losing your credentials to talk to the service). There are a number of ways to do this with native AWS services.
