A Credential Management Tool using Google Cloud KMS and Datastore

Rajesh Hegde (~rajesh82)


Software systems often need access to some shared credential. For example, your web application needs access to a database password or an API key for some third-party service.

Google CredStash is a very simple, easy to use credential management and distribution system that uses Google Cloud Key Management Service (KMS) for key storage, and Datastore for credential storage.
