Secrets are key-value pairs that contain sensitive information you want to control access to, such as API keys, passwords, or certificates. There are two options for storing secrets with InfluxDB:
- By default, secrets are Base64-encoded and stored in the InfluxDB embedded key value store, BoltDB.
- You can also set up a Vault server to store secrets. For details, see Store secrets in Vault.
