Secrets like API keys, security certificates and other credentials are the crown jewels of organizations and provide access to the inner workings of your organization.

A research project conducted throughout 2021 by GitGuardian uncovered 6 million leaked secrets publically on GitHub.com and also uncovered that nearly 5% of all docker images contain at least one plain text credential.
