       Sys::Virt::Secret - Represent & manage a libvirt secret


       The "Sys::Virt::Secret" module represents a secret managed by the virtual machine monitor.


       my $uuid = $sec->get_uuid()
           Returns a 16 byte long string containing the raw globally unique identifier (UUID) for
           the secret.

       my $uuid = $sec->get_uuid_string()
           Returns a printable string representation of the raw UUID, in the format

       my $type = $sec->get_usage_type()
           Returns the usage type of this secret. The usage type determines the format of the
           unique identifier for this secret.

       my $id = $sec->get_usage_id()
           Returns the identifier of the object with which the secret is to be used. For secrets
           with a usage type of volume, the identifier is the fully qualfied path.

       my $xml = $sec->get_xml_description()
           Returns an XML document containing a complete description of the secret's

           Remove the configuration associated with a secret previously defined with the
           "define_secret" method in Sys::Virt.

       $bytes = $sec->get_value()
           Returns the raw bytes for the value of this secret, or undef if there is no value
           stored with the secret.

           Sets the value for the secret to be $bytes.


           The constant for secrets which are not assigned for use with a particular object

           The constant for secrets which are to be used for storage volume encryption. The usage
           ID for secrets will refer to the fully qualified volume path.

           The constant for secrets which are to be used for authenticating to CEPH storage
           volumes. The usage ID for secrets will refer to the server name.
