Challenge 1 ☆
Welcome to challenge 1. You need to guess the secret that is hidden in Java, Docker, Kubernetes, Vault, AWS or GCP.
When people write a Proof of Concept, they often start with hardcoded secrets, such as a
password in code. What if we forget to remove these hardcoded secrets?
Can you spot the secret we are looking for in code? What about looking for it in the container?
Sometimes the simpler tools are the most effective. Try cloning the repo and use grep to see what you find. It is also possible to find with Git-secrets. Just dive into the code!
