Re: Update to Credhub encryption to use Key Encryption Key (KEK) protocol scheme

Credhub team,

 

What does the migration plan for this feature look like? Is the migration from key types a non-breaking change, or will it require all new deployments and keys?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike.

Subject: [cf-dev] Update to Credhub encryption to use Key Encryption Key (KEK) protocol scheme

 

Hi everyone,

 

The Credhub team is proposing a change to the current encryption scheme. 

Changing the current encryption scheme from Data Encryption Key (DEK) to Key Encryption Key (KEK) would allow for:

  •  
  • increased Credhub security posture 
  •  
  •  
  • simplification of Credhub encryption key rotation
  •  
  •  
  • integration with third-party KMS vendors with a data size limit
  •  

 

Details of the change can be found here.

 

Please feel free to share your thoughts and concerns and reach out with any questions!

 

Thanks,

The Credhub Team
