In a microservices architecture, it’s common to have multiple services that need access to sensitive information, such as API keys, passwords, or certificates. Storing this sensitive information in code or configuration files is not secure because it’s easy for attackers to gain access to this information if they can access your source code or configuration files.

To protect sensitive information, microservices often use a secrets management system, such as Amazon Secrets Manager, to securely store and manage this information. Secrets management systems provide a secure and centralized way to store and manage secrets, and they typically provide features such as encryption, access control, and auditing.
