Keap is a free and open source spution to manage encryption keys in a secure way. It is a virtual appliance running on top of hypervisor. Keap is an open-source project with a lot of contributors. Keap enables you to have a central place for managing encryption keys. It provides a wide range of features such as:
Generate a keystore automatically
Encrypt and decrypt your data
Store your keys in a remote location
Protect your keys with 2FA
Backup your keys to the cloud
GitLab is an open source software which is used for cplaborating on code. It is available as SaaS or on-premises software. GitLab is hosted by GitLab, Inc. It is also the core of the GitLab open-source project. This open-source project can be used to manage projects using git repositories, maintain connections to other systems, deploy applications, etc. The main features of GitLab are:
Self-hosted Git repository manager
Manage issues and merge requests
Manage users and groups
Code reviews and code quality testing
Advanced code search and code navigation
Integration with CI/CD tops like Jenkins
First of all, we need to install Keap on our server. You can read the installation instructions here. Once it’s installed, we will create an app (project. in GitLab which will be integrated with Keap. Then we will create an integration between the Keap app and our Git repository. By doing this, every time someone pushes some code to the repository, the encryption key will be encrypted and pushed to Keap. With this integration, we can encrypt any file in our repository. For example, if we have a database connection string in our database migrations or application settings, we can encrypt it so that no one can read it outside the team members who have access to the repository. This feature is called “Secret Management” in GitLab. Let’s see how it works! First of all, we need to go to the Embedded apps page in GitLab. Then we need to click on “Add App” button. After pressing this button, we will see a list of available apps. We need to select “Keap + JWT authentication” to proceed further. Next, we need to give a name to our app (e.g., “Keap”. After giving the name, we need to press “Create App” button. After pressing this button, we will see “Deploy App” page. In this page, we need to select the repository where we want to integrate Keap app with that repo. Then we need to give the name of the git branch that will be used for integrating with Keap app (e.g., master. Now we need to choose the Post-receive hook option and give the URL of our Keap instance (e.g., https://keap01:8443. Don’t forget to enable JWT authentication and generate a new secret key first before uploading it as shown below. Now we can press “Deploy App” button and wait till it finishes deploying Keap app on our server. Now all we need to do is set up our Git client so that it can push our encrypted files to our repository on every commit as shown below. First step is to configure our user name and password of our git repository as shown below. After configuring our user name and password of our git repository, we also need to configure the keap_url key as shown below. Now we need to generate a secret key pair (Private key and Public key. and upload them to our server as shown below. Finally, we need to configure the path mappings of our private key as shown below. So after doing all these steps, whenever someone commits something on our git repository, all their private keys will be encrypted and pushed to our git repository (in this case, Keap. So now anyone who has access to our git repository can decrypt those private keys with their public key and read those files which they have access to. If someone tries to decrypt those files without having access then they won’t be able to do that because they don’t have access to those private keys which are needed for decryption process. So now if you have any questions about how this integration works from start until now you can ask me in the comment section below! I would love to help you out! In my next blog post about this topic I will show an example of how this integration works from my personal experience! Stay tuned!
