This cookbook was designed as an example on how to use our Vault cookbook and Consul cookbook for providing a highly available secrets management infrastructure. This cookbook highlights several of our best practices for developing reusable infrastructure at Bloomberg.
It provides a bullet-proof example on how to properly write a wrapper cookbook and deploy secrets management infrastructure using Chef. The values from the node attributes set in the default recipe are passed into the resources for both cookbooks.
