I had a thought this morning for a personal project that I could use Prefect for. As always I'd like to start with 2.0, but it leads me to a pretty important question about security.
The idea I had would center around using my banking data via a python "faux API" (one of those screen scraper packages that tries to stand in place of an API). Obviously to use this, I would require two extremely sensitive secrets (card and password).
Given that 2.0 is in a beta, I guess my question is, are Secrets currently in a place where I could insert these two pieces of data and use them in a Flow? Or am I better off for now using a different secret manager and accessing it from within a task?

2.0 doesn’t have a secret manager yet so you could use another secret manager and fetch it inside a task

Ah okay, gotcha. What's the timeline for secrets in 2.0?

It’s coupled to some other work that isn’t as public yet, but it will definitely be part of 2.0 going off beta into general availability, which is estimated for July
