Episode #74: Secrets, Secrets, Are No Fun
Jun 29, 2018 @ 10:49:41

The PHP Roundtable podcast has posted their latest episode - Episode #74: Secrets, Secrets, Are No Fun. In this episode, host Sammy K Powers is joined by Chris Cornutt, Nicolas Grekas, Adam Englander and Scott Arciszewski.

Secrets, secrets, are no fun, all they do is cause pain when trying to deploy to production. By secrets, we're talking about database passwords, API keys, and other credentials that we want to keep from prying eyes.

There are a number of solutions out there to keep our secrets out of the codebase and in a more secure area. We'll discuss the options we have for managing secrets and the tradeoffs for using them.
