1. Is there a way to encrypt a Perl file containing password? I need to import database credentials from a file and would like to know more about encrypting passwords

Since you mentioned Docker... If you need something that scales in a large environment, i.e. multiple nodes requiring credentials and that also works for unattended (re-)boots, have a look at HashiCorps Vault (client: i.e. WebService::HashiCorp::Vault, server: There is still a secret to be kept (i.e. token), however, management of credentials becomes much more feasible at the cost of running a dedicated centralised (hopefully redundant) vault service.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
