Use the built-in encrypted key-value store to securely share data with your team

Preface

The rport server has a built-in key-value store based on an encrypted sqlite database. A passphrase – the so-called master key – is needed for encryption and decryption. This master-key resides only in the memory of the rport server and is not stored on the hard disk or any other permanent storage.

Only the values of the key-value store are encrypted. Keys are stored plain text.

Initialize the vault

After a fresh installation, the vault needs to be initialized.
