Saltycloud Announces Write API for STACHE
Enterprise Password Management Service Adds Write API Functionality to Complement Existing Read API
Austin, TX: Today, Salty Cloud, PBC, a SaaS infosec company specializing in providing scalable security solutions to EDU and government sectors, announced the migration of STACHE to Amazon Web Services (AWS).
STACHE, an enterprise solution to securely store, share and escrow encryption keys and other sensitive credentials (eg, passwords, numbers, procedures, keys), has added write API functionality to allow a number of different workflows to be streamlined.
Previously an owner of a STACHE entry could enable read-API functionality for a given item allowing access to the item by read-only API calls. This is useful for s/ mime encryption key management, Admin encryption/ decryption keys (log and storage logic) and other templates/ rule based logic. Now the STACHE write API can further streamline things like account and resource provisioning on campus as well as other workflows.
A power user from a major STACHE user group noted: “We store a lot of metadata in STACHE dealing with automated deployments of services in AWS (e.g., Docker image versions, Docker parameters, etc), and we’re making extensive use of the read API to retrieve secrets used by Docker images. We plan on using the write API to update this metadata in an automated way (e.g., via CI/CD workflows), rather than updating the STACHE entries manually (which is how we currently manage things).”
