#^SPIFFE – Secure Production Identity Framework for Everyone

Secure Production Identity Framework for Everyone Inspired by the production infrastructure of Google and others, SPIFFE is a set of open-source standards for securely identifying software systems in dynamic and heterogeneous environments.

What is SPIFFE?
SPIFFE, the Secure Production Identity Framework For Everyone, provides a secure identity, in the form of a specially crafted X.509 certificate, to every workload in a modern production environment. SPIFFE removes the need for application-level authentication and complex network-level ACL configuration.
