Add a parameter/metadata store to KMS
To securely store configuration using GCP tools, one needs to
1. Store them in a file
2. Encrypt that with KMS
3. Store that file in GCS
4. At runtime download that file
5. Decrypt it
It would be great if there was a way to store small secrets directly in KMS so that we don't need to go through the intermediate step of GCS ourselves.
Thanks, we’ll look into this!

Has there been any progress with this?
AWS offers a System Manager with Parameter Store where scalars can be stored as plain text or encrypted and can be made available directly to the EC2 at runtime.
Surprisingly, GCP does not appear to have similar facility.
