Barbican provides a simple OpenStack-friendly REST service for secrets management. But what goes on behind the scenes when you make that service call? Barbican can work with many existing technologies and systems to securely store and generate secrets via a plugin approach, utilizing systems such as HSMs, Dogtag and KMIP. Workflow plugins automate SSL certificate requests with Certificate Authorities (CAs), such as Symantec. Event plugins enable sending events to consuming systems for monitoring or auditing, including CADF events into Ceilometer. In this presentation we detail how these various plugins work and interact with Barbican, and how they could be extended to suit your enterprise's specific integration needs.
