NewsKeeping Passwords in Source Control PinstaffTerrence Dorsey7-Feb-13 10:31 
How do you store sensitive configuration options (such as usernames, passwords, etc.) in source control? Typically what I’ve done is to just punt on the problem entirely. I create a dummy configuration file, such as conf/sample-settings.json which has the basic structure but none of the details filled out.... The technique I picked up from Craig was to, instead, keep an encrypted version of the configuration file in source control and then provide a means through which the user can encrypt and decrypt that data.
Check out the comments for some potential concerns and additional tips.
