Anyone knows about a method of encrypting certain information in a local storage file (JSON) to prevent it against leak?

Challenges:
- Software is OSS, static keys are of no use
- Generating a secret and storing next to the config file would prevent against accidental leak of the storage file but is no real encryption
- A (remote) KMS would be a good solution but is too complicated for users of that software to set up
- Obfuscation still requires only to read the source code on a file leak
