The Kron PAM Secret Container for Kubernetes works as an init container that enables applications to access secrets stored in the Kron PAM AAPM module inside the Kubernetes cluster.
The secrets stored in Kron PAM are called through the AAPM module and allow the Kron PAM Secret Container or Sidecar container inside the Kubernetes cluster to obtain the necessary information required by the Kubernetes pod. After receiving the secrets from the Kron PAM AAPM module, the Kron PAM Secret Container can update credentials and store the credentials securely within Kubernetes.
See the How to Integrate Kron PAM with Kubernetes (Secret Container) guide for more information.
The Kron PAM Secret Plugin makes secrets that are stored in Kron PAM AAPM securely available to Jenkins jobs. Jenkins jobs can authenticate to the AAPM account and access the specific secret values.
The Secret Plugin offers advantages to both Kron PAM and Jenkins users. The Kron PAM Secret Plugin stores secret values securely and prevents secrets from being exposed in Jenkins jobs. It also provides flexibility with the support of Jenkins script projects as well as global configurations. With this plugin, Jenkins job is simplified by requiring only a URL or reference ID to a secret, and the configuration is made easy for Jenkins users with a familiar user interface.
