Docker Hub Rotated Secret

You can create a Rotated Secret for Docker Hub that will rotate privileged user credentials. Before you get started, make sure you have created a Docker Hub Target.

Create a Rotated Docker Hub Secret from the CLI

To create a Rotated Docker Hub Secret using the Akeyless CLI, run the following command:

akeyless create-rotated-secret --name <secret name> \
--gateway-url 'https:\\<Your-Akeyless-GW-URL:8000>' \
--target-name <target name to associate> \
--rotator-type target
--auto-rotate <true|false> \
--rotation-interval <1-365> \
--rotation-hour <hour in UTC>

Where:

  • name: A unique name of the Rotated Secret. The name can include the path to the virtual folder where you want to create the new Rotated Secret, using slash / separators. If the folder does not exist, it will be created together with the Rotated Secret.

  • gateway-url: Akeyless Gateway URL.

  • target-name: The name of the Docker Hub Target with which the Rotated Secret should be associated.

  • rotator-type: Must be set to target.

  • auto-rotate: Enable auto-rotation if you need to update the Access Key regularly. If this value is set to true, specify the rotation-interval in days, and optionally also the rotation-hour.

You can find the complete list of parameters for this command in the CLI Reference - Rotated Secrets section.

🚧

Important

Rotating the Target credentials (i.e., changing your Docker Hub password) will invalidate all existing personal access tokens.

Create a Rotated Docker Hub Secret in the Akeyless Console.

Tip

To start working with Rotated Secrets from the Akeyless Console, you need to configure the Gateway URL thus enabling communication between the Akeyless SaaS and the Akeyless Gateway.

To create rotated secrets directly from the Akeyless Gateway, you can use the Gateway Configuration Manager.

  1. Log in to the Akeyless Console, and go to Secrets & Keys > New > Rotated Secret.

  2. Define a Name of the Rotated Secret, and specify the Location as a path to the virtual folder where you want to create the new Rotated Secret, using slash / separators. If the folder does not exist, it will be created together with the Rotated Secret.

  3. Define the remaining settings as follows:

  • Delete Protection: When enabled, protects the Rotated Secret from accidental deletion.

  • Target: Defines the name of the Docker Hub Target to be associated with the Rotated Secret.

  • Rotator type: Determines the rotator type:

    • Target: Rotates the privileged user credentials defined inside the Docker Hub Target item.

Tip

When you're using a Target rotator, the access role with which this Rotated Secret is associated must have read and update permissions on the corresponding Target.

  • Gateway: Select the Gateway through which the secret will be rotated.

  • Protection Key: To enable Zero-Knowledge, select a key with a Customer Fragment. For more information about Zero-Knowledge, see Implement Zero Knowledge.

  • Auto rotate: Determines if automatic rotation is enabled.

  • Rotation interval (in days): Defines the number of days (1-365) to wait between automatic rotations when Auto Rotate is enabled.

  • Rotation hour (local time zone): Defines the time when credentials should be rotated if Auto Rotate is enabled.

  1. Click Finish.
