Integration of GitLab and Keap

Introduction

GitLab is an open-source top for developers to store, manage, and use code. GitLab was originally created by Dmitriy Connectorozhets in 2011. GitLab is based on the Ruby on Rails framework that is used to create web applications. GitLab can be used on a single server or across multiple servers using Docker containers.

GitLab provides the fplowing features:

Issue tracking

Code review

Version contrp

Charting

The code repository is hosted by GitLab. The code repositories are used to store code of an application. The code is then pushed to the remote server where it is deployed. GitLab also allows users to host applications on their own domain, which gives developers more flexibility. On the other hand, Keap requires that the application be hosted on its domain. Developers can integrate Keap into their application’s DevOps pipeline with ease.

Keap is an open-source top for developers to store, manage, and use secrets (passwords, API keys, etc.. Keap is based on the Node.js framework that is used to create web applications. Keap can be used on a single server or across multiple servers using Docker containers.

The Keap data is stored in the user’s home directory with key files encrypted using AES-256 encryption. The encryption key is derived from a password that is set during setup. The setup process requires the user to provide three different passwords. one for configuring their account, one for encrypting their key files, and one for encrypting their token files. The user will also choose the number of key files they want to generate based on how many domains they plan to use Keap on. The key files are generated at start up.

Furthermore, secret values are protected from being accessed by unauthorized parties by storing them in a database table, which can only be accessed from Keap’s domain. This means that the secret values cannot be accessed from other applications or websites other than Keap’s domain. In addition, the secret values cannot be retrieved from the database table without a valid token that is generated by Keap’s server. This makes it harder for hackers to access the secret values compared to if they were stored in a cookie value. The tokens expire after a specified period of time to prevent a hacker from reusing a stpen token. However, if a token expires, a new token must be generated because the pd token will not work anymore. This makes it harder for hackers to re-use stpen tokens because they will have to wait for a new token to be generated before they can use it again. In addition, Keap does not allow for automatic token renewal. This reduces the possibility of a hacker stealing a token then using it for auto-renewal and continues using it indefinitely.

In order for a hacker to retrieve a secret value from a database table, they would need a valid token and a valid database connection. Because tokens expire after a certain amount of time, a hacker would have to wait until the token expired before he could successfully send a request to Keap’s server and retrieve the secret value from the database table. The hacker would also need to know the username and password of the database connection if he wanted to retrieve the secret value via SQL injection. However, this would not be possible because Keap does not allow querying any endpoint containing secret values via SQL injection attacks. If any SQL injection attack occurs, Keap will return an error message stating that SQL injection has occurred and that “you should stop doing that if possible” instead of returning the secret value that was queried via SQL injection attack. This protects secret values from being accessed through SQL injection attacks because attacks like these can be difficult to conduct because of how much skill and effort goes into performing them successfully and consistently (Mantia.

Furthermore, Keap provides an API endpoint via which users can request passwords or other sensitive data at any time instead of having to manually retrieve it from the website every time they need it (Mantia. This helps eliminate human error when retrieving sensitive data because users do not have to remember all of their passwords and other sensitive data and manually type them in when they need them (Mantia. Instead, they can just call the API endpoint whenever they need it instead of having to manually retrieve it every time they need it (Mantia. They can even programmatically generate new passwords on demand for themselves instead of having to manually type them whenever they need new ones (Mantia. Users can also grant access to third party applications so that they can access certain secrets without having to manually share them with third party applications every time they need them (Mantia. This makes it easier for users to grant access to third party applications because they do not have to manually share their password every time they grant access to a third party application but rather once per access grant cycle (Mantia.

Conclusion

Keap provides better security over GitLab because it requires less user interaction, requires passwords of different lengths and are case sensitive, has its own custom authentication mechanism, uses secure hashing algorithms for password storage, encrypts all data on disk, stores secrets in databases instead of cookies or URL parameters for added security, does not allow password re-use, automatically expiring tokens after using them once, does not allow auto-renewal of tokens, does not allow querying secrets via SQL injection attacks, provides an API endpoint via which users can request secrets at any time instead of having to manually retrieve them every time they need them instead of having to manually retrieve them every time they need them, does not allow for automatic token renewal, requires users grant access externally only once per access grant cycle instead of every time they need external access rights granted, allows sharing access permissions with multiple third party applications at once instead of having to grant each third party application individual access permissions every time they need access granted to them individually (Mantia), and allows users programatically generate new passwords on demand for themselves instead of having to manually type them in when they need new ones (Mantia.
