+A tool for managing secrets.
+Custodia is a project that aims to define an API for modern cloud applications
+that allows to easily store and share passwords, tokens, certificates and any
+other secret in a way that keeps data secure, mangeable and auditable.
+The Custodia project offers example implementations of clear text and encrypted
+backends, and aims to soon provide drivers to store data in external data
+stores like the Vault Project, OpenStack's Barbican, FreeIPA's Vault and

+access to even more secure means of dealing with private keys, like HSM as a
+Service and other similar security systems.
+See the Custodia wiki for more information about the current architecture:
