  • Key revocation.
  • Key rolling.
  • Auditing.
  • Data encryption.
  • Provides an API for all operations.
  • Is not meant as a service or token provider, which gets embedded.
  • In the request/response cycle.

Vault's offerings are different than competitors such as LastPass and 1Password because it supports all the above operations whereas its competitors only support encryption. HashiCorp has developed security integrations partnerships with several companies to make the Vault product accessible.

Secrets management

Secrets management refers to the tools and methods used to manage digital authentication credentials including passwords, tokens for in-application use, APIs, services, privileged accounts, and other sensitive information. HashiCorp developed Vault to protect "secrets" from unauthorized or rogue users and to maintain active records, including time, date, and identity, of the individuals requesting authentication information from the interface. Vault is primarily put to use through integration in its authorization backend. The authorization back end then moves the information and converts it to the Vault secrets backend where the information is stored for safe-keeping until an authorized user makes the request for specific keys.

Databases

Vault allows users to store databases and offers numerous integrations with database providers to allow the storage of important and sensitive data information. The database integrations include:

  • Cassandra
  • HanaDB
  • MongoDB
  • MSSQL
  • MySQL/MariaDB
  • PostgreSQL
  • Oracle

InnoQ use cases

InnoQ is a company that employs HashiCorp's Vault product for secrets management. In an InnoQ conference presentation Daniel Bornkessel, Senior Consultant at InnoQ states the vault product is used in the following process:

  • Pass secrets in via env vars
  • Read the values from Kubernetes secrets (Kubernetes is a Vault integration tool)
  • Assign role-based access control
  • Manually change and update passwords (InnoQ has plans to automate this process in the future)

At the time of the use case review, InnoQ was not implementing three of Vault's features: the audit log, which tracks the users, time, and date of accessed credentials, automated password changing and updating, and credential revoking. Despite not implementing these features, Daniel Bornkessel stated that InnoQ was considering implementing the features in the future for more maximized security practices.
