HashiCorp Vault on the AWS Cloud

HashiCorp Vault is a product that centrally secures, stores and controls access to tokens, passwords, certificates, and encryption keys through a UI, CLI, or an HTTP API. Vault’s core use cases include:

  • Secrets management: Securely manage and deploy secrets across different environments, applications, and services.
  • Encryption and data protection: Manage encryption and keys for developers and operators across different environments, applications, and services.
  • Privileged-access management: Secure workloads for application-to-application and user-to-application credential management across different environments and services.

HashiCorp Vault is designed for DevOps professionals and application developers who want to manage their secrets, data, and key-value stores. It’s built using the open-source version of Vault, but it’s also compatible with Vault Enterprise. Supplemental details, with instructions and screenshots, are available on the HashiCorp Vault and Vault Enterprise websites.

Each stack in this deployment takes approximately 20 minutes to create. For more information and step-by-step deployment instructions, see the deployment guide.
