Summon is a separate Open Source utility offered by CyberArk Conjur. Summon provides an interface for fetching secrets from a variety of trusted stores and exporting the secret values as environment variables to a sub-process environment.
Summon prevents secrets from being exposed by removing the need to store them directly in source code. You can leverage this advantage in your Conjurprojects by using the Summon Conjurprovider.
Summon includes other providers in addition to the Conjurprovider, including AWS S3, AWS Secrets Manager.
