Secrets, or decrypting GPG value into environment variable? [message #1841103] Mon, 03 May 2021 22:12

Some organizations require database credentials to be the same as corporate credentials. A common method of doing this is to store them as plain text in a config file, which is obviously an OPSEC vulnerability. Is there a better way of doing this. Does Eclipse have a way of handling secrets in an opaque way?

Initially I thought to set up a PGP key, and encrypt the credentials to a file, then have Eclipse decrypt the credentials and store them as environment variables for debug configurations.

Is this possible? Or is there a better way to handle this scenario?
