GCP Secrets Manager

Google Secret Manager is a secure, scalable, and easy-to-use secrets management service provided by Google Cloud Platform (GCP). It allows you to store and manage secrets, such as passwords, API keys, and other sensitive information, in a central location.

Secret Manager  uses encryption to protect your secrets, and only authorized users or services are allowed to access them. You can also set fine-grained permissions to control which users or services have access to which secrets.

Another key feature of Secret Manager is its scalability. It is designed to handle large volumes of secrets and support high levels of concurrency, making it suitable for use in high-traffic applications. It also integrates with other GCP services, such as Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and Google App Engine, allowing you to easily retrieve secrets from Secret Manager and use them in your applications.

Secret Manager also provides a number of other benefits. It is easy to use, with a simple API and command-line interface, and it integrates seamlessly with other GCP services. It also has a number of built-in security controls, such as auditing and compliance features, to help you meet regulatory requirements and maintain the security of your secrets.
