NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
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. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

Blackbox is a simple tool for encrypting specific files while at rest in your source repository. This is particularly useful if you need to store passwords or private keys. Blackbox works with Git, Mercurial and Subversion and uses GPG for the encryption. Each user has their own key, which makes it easy to revoke access on a granular level. There is a lot happening in this space and a few other players to consider including git-crypt and Trousseau.
