This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today.

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

Berglas is a tool for managing secrets on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). We've recommended secrets as a service as a technique to store and share secrets in modern distributed architectures in the past, and GCP offers Secret Manager for that purpose, and Berglas works well with Secret Manager. This is especially useful for those GCP services that don't have direct integration with Secret Manager yet; the alternative in such cases would be to write custom code or scripts. Berglas ships as a command-line tool and as a library, and both also come in handy in use cases beyond secrets as a service. The author of Berglas, who also happens to be the original author of HashiCorp Vault, now works at Google; however, Berglass is not an official Google product.
