Dynamic Secrets

Dynamic secrets are secrets that are generated every time they are accessed, using permissions you've defined in advance. In this way, users can access a resource for a temporary period with a defined set of permissions. You can configure multiple dynamic secrets for the same resource to granularly control the breadth of access either per a temporary user on a specific target or for the entire target within a single action. You can revoke all temporary users immediately for a specific target as necessary.

To create a dynamic secret, you must configure the required account and access credentials. The Akeyless Platform uses these to communicate with the resource and get short-lived passwords as required. You can configure:



The configuration required to produce dynamic secrets is part of your private network, and are stored on the Akeyless Gateway.
