Secret store

Secrets written to a secret store are encrypted in transit and at rest. Secret store entries are write-only and plaintext secret values cannot be retrieved via the API. The plaintext values are only available to Compute services during their request processing.

A secret store is a persistent, globally distributed store for secrets accessible to Compute services during request processing. Learn more about secret stores.
