Re: Incubation Proposal: CredHub (credential manager)

Hi Daniel,

I'm glad you are excited for CredHub.

on the incubation request, they will be moved to the appropriate CFF org.

separate initiative and a proposal will be sent out to the community for
comment before it is implemented.

We will not focus on applications directly leveraging CredHub beyond
service credentials for this work, but it will move us closer to enabling
that use case.

Hi Dan,
thumps up for the proposal.

Thinking about application secrets. You state to also cover "Conceal
service credentials from the Cloud Controller". Assuming you mean to
encrypt e.g. passwords that are stored in the env of an application, right?
So I assume this will help applications already to securely store their
