Securing data at rest

The Snyk CLI stores its configuration in a JSON file in the local file system in a user-related path. Because the configuration file might include secrets like tokens, it is recommended that you secure the stored file.

The following practices are recommended:

  • Use ACLs to limit access to the file path of the configuration file. This might be provided by the operating system.

  • Use Hard Disk Encryption to secure persisted data (data at rest).
