The encryption key used to encrypt a compute disk has been specified in plaintext.

Explanation

Sensitive values such as raw encryption keys should not be included in your Terraform code, and should be stored securely by a secrets manager.

Possible Impact

The encryption key should be considered compromised as it is not stored securely.

Suggested Resolution

Reference a managed key rather than include the key in raw format.

Insecure Example

The following example will fail the google-compute-disk-encryption-required check.

resource "google_compute_disk" "good_example" {
	disk_encryption_key {
		raw_key="b2ggbm8gdGhpcyBpcyBiYWQ="
	}
}

Secure Example

The following example will pass the google-compute-disk-encryption-required check.

resource "google_compute_disk" "good_example" {
	disk_encryption_key {
		kms_key_self_link = google_kms_crypto_key.my_crypto_key.id
	}
}
