1. OCI API Key Management for Secure AI Services Access


    Managing API keys is a critical aspect of securing access to AI services in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). API keys are used to authenticate applications and users to cloud services without embedding passwords or other sensitive information in your code. Pulumi's infrastructure as code approach can help set up and manage these API keys securely.

    The following Pulumi program in Python uses the oci.Identity.DomainsMyApiKey resource from the Pulumi OCI provider to create and manage an API key within an OCI Identity domain. This program will define a Pulumi resource representing an OCI API key, assign the necessary properties to it, and ensure that it is created within your OCI account.

    Explanation of the Resources

    • oci.Identity.DomainsMyApiKey: This is the Pulumi resource we will use to create an API key in OCI. It allows us to specify the details of the API key, such as the user it is associated with, any tags for organizational purposes, and the key itself.

    Remember that for running this program, you will need to set up the Pulumi OCI provider and have the appropriate permissions to create and manage resources in your OCI account.

    Pulumi Program

    import pulumi import pulumi_oci as oci # Replace the following with appropriate values compartment_ocid = "ocid1.compartment.oc1..xxxxxx" user_ocid = "ocid1.user.oc1..xxxxxx" api_key = "your-api-key-material" # Create an API key for a user within a particular OCI Identity domain api_key_resource = oci.identity.DomainsMyApiKey("myApiKey", ocid=compartment_ocid, user=oci.identity.UserArgs( ocid=user_ocid ), key=api_key, # As an example, you might want to tag your resource for clarity or organizational purposes tags=[ oci.identity.DomainsMyApiKeyTagsArgs( key="department", value="ai-services" ) ], description="API key for accessing secure AI services", idcsEndpoint="https://identity.us-ashburn-1.oraclecloud.com" # This is an example endpoint, you should use your regional endpoint ) # Export the API key OCID so that you can reference it elsewhere if needed pulumi.export('api_key_ocid', api_key_resource.ocid)

    Explanation of the Code

    • We import the necessary Pulumi packages for interacting with OCI.
    • The compartment_ocid, user_ocid, and api_key need to be replaced with the actual values pertinent to your OCI environment and API key material.
    • We instantiate an OCI API key resource (oci.Identity.DomainsMyApiKey) and provide it with information about the owning user, the key itself, any tags, a description, and the IDCS endpoint for your region.
    • We export the API key's OCID, which uniquely identifies this resource within your OCI environment, and can be used to refer to this API key in other parts of your infrastructure or Pulumi programs.

    Keep in mind that when you manage credentials like API keys, you need to be cautious about hardcoding sensitive information into your source code. Always prefer using environment variables or a secrets manager to handle sensitive data, and avoid committing such data to version control.

    Please also refer to the relevant documentation of the oci.Identity.DomainsMyApiKey resource to understand all of its available options and properties.
