Managing secrets across CI/CD platforms using Password Manager Pro
Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) platforms are usually automation tools that help organizations automate their configuration management through pipelines to run routine tasks without human supervision. Execution of these tasks more often than not require sensitive information like privileged passwords, API keys, and access tokens to interface with other systems, applications, and services in the environment. In most DevOps environments, such credentials are stored in plaintext within script files to enable smooth task execution without service delays, which can lead to many security and management issues.
To mitigate the risks that can emerge from such practices, Password Manager Pro helps eliminate embedded credentials in the DevOps pipeline by providing integration capabilities with various CI/CD tools.
