The purpose of this component is to load keys from a local directory.
The component accepts as input the name of a folder, and loads keys from there. Each key is in its own file, and when users request a key with a given name, Dapr loads the file with that name.
Supported file formats:
- PEM with public and private keys (supports: PKCS#1, PKCS#8, PKIX)
- JSON Web Key (JWK) containing a public, private, or symmetric key
- Raw key data for symmetric keys
NoteThis component uses the cryptographic engine in Dapr to perform operations. Although keys are never exposed to your application, Dapr has access to the raw key material.
crypto.yaml component file has the following structure:
- name: path
WarningThe above example uses secrets as plain strings. It is recommended to use a secret store for the secrets, as described here.
