So we have our builds fully automated using Chef and utilizing Chef vault for environmental variables and encryption of things such as passwords.  We want to be able to leverage our previous work as we move towards containers.  I did go to a Chef conference recently where they suggested looking at Habitat, but it would seem that this is a common issue as shops migrate.  We are thinking we can create a Chef recipe to create the container file and still use the same vaults for storage for now.  Do you have a recommended path for this migration?  Thoughts on encrypting passwords and other secrets in a CI/CD world targeting containers, tips and tricks?
