Can dev in the project see the AWS SSH key?

Dear everybody in the community,

Newcomer to CircleCI here. So far I can say that I am very impressed with the technology.

Our team has decided to authenticate using AWS SSH keys (deploy by Capistrano method). Our system admin is inserting AWS’s SSH key into CircleCI per instructions here:

Does it mean that developers who are given access to the repository (we use bitbucket) and therefore access to CircleCI can also access (see) this key? Or they can only refer to it as a variable?

I think it should be impossible but I just want to make sure.
