I use 2 bash scripts and a credential file encrypted in AES256 via openssl.
Eventually, I keep the credential file in dropbox and my servers.

I have a question: why openssl?  Why not use GnuPG or something more
appropriate to the task?

Because openssl is installed by default everywhere. So I can open my credentials from anywhere.
