Interface VaultStringSecret

  • All Superinterfaces:
    All Known Implementing Classes:

    public interface VaultStringSecret
    extends AutoCloseable
    A String based representation of the secret obtained from the vault that supports automated cleanup of memory. In this case, due to the immutable nature of strings, the cleanup should consist in releasing any references to the secret string so it can be disposed by the GC as soon as possible.
