Keys

Secure your cloud environment with centralised lifecycle management of keys for access control and encryption.

Definition

A Key stack is a resource (or collection of resources) designed to maintain sensitive system access values. These may take the form of secrets, passwords, tokens, or certificates. The role of the Key stack is to deliver:

  • Secure storage of key values.
  • Secure provision of keys to cloud resources and automated processes.
  • Retirement of keys upon expiry or renewal.

Secrets are typically created by external systems or apps, not by the Key stack itself.
