    HashiCorp Vault is an encryption and secrets management system that is identity-based. When there is a portion of data that an organization wants to maintain confidentiality and control securely, it is considered a “secret.” These include such data as certificates, API encryption keys, passwords, and more. HashiCorp Vault creates complex encryption processes that are secured by additional authorization and authentication protocols. The solution will provide comprehensive restricted access to secrets and other confidential data via HashiCorp Vault’s HTTP API, CLI, or UI. The data is auditable and is stored securely.

    Today’s organizations depend upon a plethora of secrets to function effectively. It is therefore imperative that organizations securely control who has access to secrets and other data. HashiCorp Vault is a custom solution that can make the challenging process of securing even the most platform-specific storage easier, and adds detailed audit logs to lock it all down and keep the data safe.

    HashiCorp Vault Features

    • Data encryption: The solution is capable of encrypting and decrypting data, and will not store it. Organizations’ security personnel define their own encryption protocols; developers can store the encrypted data where they choose and are not obligated to design specific encryption processes.

    • Robust secrets: For systems such as AWS or SQL databases, Vault is able to generate secrets automatically. HashiCorp Vault is able to generate AWS keypairs with all the appropriate permissions when necessary, and when the approved time expires, will nullify them.

    • Secure secret storage: Any type of value or key secrets can be stored in the Vault. The Vault automatically encrypts the desired secrets before recording them into persistent storage, keeping them safe and secure. Users can record data using HCP Vault’s Consul service or disk, or choose from other options.

    • Nullification: Vault is able to nullify single secrets or all secrets from a particular group or specific user. This process is integral in securing systems in the event of an attack or inappropriate access.

It provides encryption of data at rest, in use, in transit, on the fly, and linked with applications, which was really attractive. The lifecycle of a key is so easy to manage in terms of rotating, revoking, and issuing. They have different auth methods, and I tried all different auth methods. It is seamless.”- Project Manager at a comms service provider.

    “The most valuable feature of HashiCorp Vault is that it's an open source solution. Second, it's cloud-agnostic, so it's very easy to maintain and control, which is why we prefer HashiCorp. “ - Mohamed A., Lead DevOps Engineer at Etisalat.
