Go Report Card

treasury

Treasury is a very simple tool for managing secrets. It uses Amazon S3 or SSM (Systems Manager Parameter Store) service to store secrets. By default, Treasury uses SSM as a backend. The secrets are encrypted before saving them on disks in Amazon data centers and decrypted when being read. Treasury uses Server-Side Encryption with AWS KMS-Managed Keys (SSE-KMS).

Architecture

Architecture overwiev

Command Line interface (CLI)

Treasury is controlled via a very easy to use command-line interface (CLI). Treasury is only a single command-line application: treasury. This application takes a subcommand such as "read", "write", "import" or "export".

The Treasury CLI is a well-behaved command line application. In erroneous cases, a non-zero exit status will be returned. It also responds to -h and --help as you'd most likely expect.

To view a list of the available commands at any time, just run treasury with no arguments. To get help for any specific subcommand, run the subcommand with the -h argument.

Configuration

AWS Credentials

Before using the Treasury CLI, ensure that you've configured AWS credentials. The best way to configure credentials on your machine is to use the ~/.aws/credentials file, which might look like:

[default]
aws_access_key_id = AKID1234567890
aws_secret_access_key = MY-SECRET-KEY

Alternatively, you can set the following environment variables:

AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=AKID1234567890
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=MY-SECRET-KEY

You can also use non-default awscli profile:

AWS_PROFILE=development treasury read development/webapp/cockpit_api_pass`

And non-default awscli profile without default region:

AWS_PROFILE=development ./treasury --region eu-west-1 read test/webapp/cockpit_pass`

SSM store configuration

Treasury uses SSM store by default. No additional configuration is required.

S3 store configuration

In order to use S3 as a store, set TREASURY_S3 environment variable with S3 bucket name.

For example:

export TREASURY_S3=ah-dev-treasury-development

In order to use SSM as a store, unset previously configured TREASURY_S3 environment variable.

AWS Region configuration

In addition to the IAM credentials you'll need to specify the AWS region. You can specify the region either with an environment variable (example below), or directly in AWS configuration file $HOME/.aws/config. More about configuration here.

export AWS_DEFAULT_REGION=eu-west-1

Installation

on OSX:

brew tap airhelp/taps git@github.com:AirHelp/homebrew-taps.git
brew update
brew install treasury

CLI Usage

Write secret

> treasury write development/webapp/cockpit_api_pass superSecretPassword
Success! Data written to: development/webapp/cockpit_api_pass

Note: if secret value is equal to existing one, write is skipped. --force flag can be used to overwrite.

Write file content

> treasury write development/webapp/credentials_yaml <filename> --file
Success! Data written to: development/webapp/credentials_yaml

Note: if secret value is equal to existing one, write is skipped. --force flag can be used to overwrite. Stored file content in key is gzipped and converted to base64. You can decode it with bash script easily:

> treasury read  development/webapp/credentials_yaml | base64 -D | gzip -d > creadentails.yaml

or you can handle it with your application. Size limit depends on backend that you are using - for AWS SSM size limit is 4096 bytes (after gzip and base64).

Read secret

> treasury read development/webapp/cockpit_api_pass
superSecretPassword

List secrets

List the secrets set for a path

> treasury list development/application/
development/application/app_api_pass
development/application/test

Import secrets

Assuming properties file ./secrets.env with content:

ke1=secret1
key2=secret2

To import these values into a previously configured store:

> treasury import development/application/ ./secrets.env
Import successful

Export secrets

Assuming stored secrets pairs on treasury store

development/webapp/key1 => superSecretPassword1
development/webapp/key2 => superSecretPassword2

To see exported values:

> treasury export development/webapp/
export key1=superSecretPassword1
export key2=superSecretPassword2

To export them into shell environment variables:

eval $(treasury export development/webapp/)

Teamplate usage

Render the template on disk at /tmp/template.tpl to /tmp/result:

treasury template --src /tmp/template.tpl --dst /tmp/result

Treasury parses file in the Go Template format. The input text for a template is UTF-8-encoded text in any format. "Actions"--data evaluations or control structures--are delimited by "{{" and "}}"; all text outside actions is copied to the output unchanged.

Template usage with string append to secret value

treasury template --src /tmp/template.tpl --dst /tmp/result --append key1:v2

This command ends up with output file where the value of variable key1 has a string "v2" appended.

Supported actions:

read

Returns single value for given key

{{ read "ENVIRONMENT/APPLICATION/SECRET_NAME" }}

Example:

COCKPIT_API_PASSWORD={{ read "production/cockpit/cockpit_api_password" }}

export

Returns all values for a given path in key=value format

{{ export "development/treasury/" }}

will generate:

key1=secret1
key2=secret2
key3=secret3
key4=secret4

exportMap

Returns all values for a given path in Go map structure

{{ range $key, $value := exportMap "development/treasury/" }} {{ $key }}: {{ $value }}{{ end }}

will generate:

key1: secret1
key2: secret2
key3: secret3
key4: secret4

Go Client

Example for S3 as a store:

import "github.com/AirHelp/treasury/client"

// use default client options
treasury, err := client.New(&client.Options{
    Backend: "s3",
    S3BucketName: TREASURY_S3_BUCKET_NAME,
})
secret, err := treasury.Read(key)
if err != nil {
  return err
}

fmt.Println(secret.Value)

TREASURY_S3_BUCKET_NAME is a S3 bucket name dedicated for treasury use.

Example for SSM as a store:

import "github.com/AirHelp/treasury/client"

// use default client options
treasury, err := client.New(&client.Options{
    Backend: "ssm",
})
secret, err := treasury.Read(key)
if err != nil {
  return err
}

fmt.Println(secret.Value)
