TAP 1.5 – External Secrets Operator Enhancements

The External Secrets Operator is a Kubernetes operator that integrates with external secret management systems, for example, AWS Secrets Manager, Google Secrets Manager and Hashicorp Vault. It reads information from external APIs and automatically injects the values into Kubernetes secrets.
