Sometimes you want to store some secrets in your git repository. It is a good practice to have them encrypted if stored externally (publicly). There are dedicated solutions such as git-secret or git-crypt. However, you can also achieve similar result with the openssl tool, which is quite often already preinstalled on your host.


To decrypt example.yaml.enc stored in this repository,run:

You have to provide password okon.

enter aes-256-cbc decryption password:
Files decrypted successfully

This script creates security/openssl-enc/assets/decrypted/ (git ignored) directory containing file with decoded value:

hakuna: matata

If you need to update secrets in this repo overwrite plaintext file and execute ./security/openssl-enc/
