Configuration secret provider

Configuration secret provider brings you all registered configuration providers of .NET Core by using IConfiguration to your application.

⚡ Supports synchronous secret retrieval.

⚠ When using configuration secret provider, it will look for secrets in all configuration sources which is not secure. This provider should only be used for development.


The configuration secret provider is built-in as part of the package Arcus.Security.Core.
