To interact with secrets and resource with Infisical, it is important to undrestand the concept of identities. Identities can be of two types:

  • People (e.g., developers, platform engineers, administrators)
  • Machines (e.g., machine entities for managing secrets in CI/CD pipelines, production applications, and more)

Both people and machines are able to utilize corresponding clients (e.g., Dashboard UI, CLI, SDKs, API, Kubernetes Operator) together with allowed authentication methods (e.g., email & password, SAML SSO, LDAP, OIDC, Universal Auth).
