Keywhiz vs Shippable: What are the differences?
Keywhiz: A system for distributing and managing secrets. Keywhiz is a secret management and distribution service that is now available for everyone. Keywhiz helps us with infrastructure secrets, including TLS certificates and keys, GPG keyrings, symmetric keys, database credentials, API tokens, and SSH keys for external services — and even some non-secrets like TLS trust stores. Automation with Keywhiz allows us to seamlessly distribute and generate the necessary secrets for our services, which provides a consistent and secure environment, and ultimately helps us ship faster; Shippable: Shippable is a SaaS platform that lets you easily add Continuous Integration/Deployment to your Github & Bitbucket repos. Shippable is a SaaS platform that lets you easily add Continuous Integration/Deployment to your Github and BitBucket repositories. It is lightweight, super simple to setup, and runs your builds and tests faster than any other service.
Keywhiz belongs to "Secrets Management" category of the tech stack, while Shippable can be primarily classified under "Continuous Integration".
Some of the features offered by Keywhiz are:
- Keywhiz Server provides JSON APIs for accessing and managing secrets. It is written in Java and based on Dropwizard.
- KeywhizFs is a FUSE-based file system, providing secrets as if they are files in a directory. Transparently, secrets are retrieved from a Keywhiz Server using mTLS with a client certificate.
- Presenting secrets as files makes Keywhiz compatible with nearly all software. Outside of Keywhiz administration, consumers of secrets only have to know how to read a file.
On the other hand, Shippable provides the following key features:
- 1-Click Setup
- Docker Containers
- Responsive UI
