Barbican is a RESTful key manager service service for cloud applications.

Barbican includes a REST API (called Barbican) designed for the secure storage, provisioning and management of secrets. The API can interface with security appliances (such as HSMs).

The OpenStack community maintains several clients to this API: python-barbicanclient, a Python library and command line client, and the unified sdk python-openstacksdk.

Barbican is based on the OpenStack architecture. It supports configurable middleware such as to interface with Keystone for authentication and authorization services. Components from the Oslo commons project are used, such as config and logging.
