The project managers of an open-source plug-in for Kubernetes that allows the orchestration software to better use encryption to protect its secrets has announced support for its first key management provider. The move is a step forward for Trousseau, the plug-in that creates a universal way to protect secrets in Kubernetes.
Without Trousseau, managing secrets to protect sensitive data in Kubernetes can be complicated. Many components need to be created to support the process, which can be a headache for security teams. With Trousseau, secrets management can be added easily to Kubernetes along with support for any key management encryption providers.
