In this talk I will show how to save secret keys in Docker containers and K8s in production and best practices for saving and securing distribution of secrets. With Docker and k8s secrets we can manage information related to keys that are needed at runtime but cannot be exposed in the Docker image or source code repository.

These could be the main talking points:

1.Challenges of security and secret keys in containers

2.Best practices for saving and securing distribution of secrets in Docker Containers

3.Managing secrets in Kubernetes using volumes and sealed-secrets

4.Other tools for distributing secrets in containers like Hashicorp Vault and KeyWhiz
