Kubernetes Secrets 101

  • Kubernetes is designed to have a declarative syntax.
  • Object definitions are stored in YAML (or JSON) files and - typically - placed under version control.
  • Adding confidential information to a version-controlled file (that anyone can view) is against any security best practice.
  • For that reason, Kubernetes includes Secrets.
  • A Secret is just another Kubernetes object that stores restricted data so that it can be used without being revealed.
  • Kubernetes users can create Secrets, and also the system itself establishes and uses Secrets.
