When running a Kubernetes Cluster in AWS there are secrets like AWS and Kubernetes credentials, access information for databases or integration with the company LDAP that need to be stored and managed.
HashiCorp’s Vault secures, stores, and controls access to tokens, passwords, certificates, API keys, and other secrets . It handles leasing, key revocation, key rolling, and auditing.
This talk will give an overview of secret management in general and Vault’s concepts. The talk will explain how to make use of Vault’s extensive feature set and show patterns that implement integration between Kubernetes applications and Vault.
