Users can use PrivX to store and share information securely. Secrets are JSON formatted data, which PrivX stores and handles access to.

PrivX secrets are under the Secrets page. On this page you can add, and edit secrets. You can also search secrets by their name.

Adding Secrets

When adding secrets, you must provide the data that PrivX will secure in JSON format.

Access to Secrets

Secrets can be given read and write accesses with roles. When adding or editing a secret, Add Role to Read Access and/or Write Access to control who gains the wanted type of access to the secret data. Note that if no role is given read access, no user can read the secret, and similarly with write access.

Role Permissions

The Role permissions that govern secrets are:

  • vault-add: Allows the user to add secrets.

  • vault-manage: Allows the user to add and delete secrets, modify the secret's metadata, modify the secret's content, list secrets, and view the secret's metadata.

  • read-role: Allows the user to access the secret's content, list secrets and view the secret's metadata.
