Private key file content storage in CyberArk for automated retrieval


Is there a recommendation on how to achieve storing and retrieving private key file/content using CyberArk/Conjur if it makes sense.

The way we approached this is by base64 encoding the private key content -> store in password field -> retrieve using conjur -> base64 decode it for downstream usage.
Please suggest if you see anti patterns in this approach.

Also please suggest, if there is a way to configure the max password length in PVWA (via UI or backend) so we can pass recommendations on the said mechanism internally with limitations.


You can set the limit on the length of the password using the PasswordLength parameter of the CyberArk platform you are using to managing the account.

You can refer to this article on how we can store secrets which are files which might be relevant to what you are looking
