Efficient password management in distributed teams

Secure Transfer


The example in this article used an encrypted store for secret information in an ordinary directory. This directory can be distributed like source code (e.g., by checking into version control).

Thanks to Pass, entries and exits by team members can largely be treated automatically without compromising security. Access is easy to automate, too, because you can use a simple command at the command line to output any secret directly to standard output.
