Use managed secret store


ID: MS-M9022
MITRE mitigation: M1029

Use cloud secret store, such as Azure Key Vault, to securely store secrets that are used by the workloads in the cluster. This allows cloud-level management of the secret which includes permission management, expiration management, secret rotation, auditing, etc. The integration of cloud secret stores with Kubernetes is done by using Secrets Store CSI Driver, which is implemented by all major cloud providers.
