Building secure applications with Vault

By Erik Veld on March 15, 2016

How to store and grant access to secret or sensitive information is a difficult problem to solve. It’s often too easy to accidentally introduce security issues along the way. Every organization needs to store private or sensitive information, such as database credentials, cloud provider credentials, API keys, etcetera while keeping it accessible to some individuals or systems.

How do you share this information without opening it up to attack? And if a security breach does occur, how can you see what information was requested by whom and revoke the affected keys? One product that provides answers to these questions and solves these security issues is HashiCorp’s Vault.

Vault secures, stores, and tightly controls access to tokens, passwords, certificates, API keys, and other secrets in modern computing. Vault handles leasing, key revocation, key rolling, and auditing.


Secure your applications and infrastructure to limit the surface area and attack time in the event of a breach.

What better way to learn how to manage your secrets and build secure applications with Vault than from the source? On March 31, HashiCorp’s Seth Vargo will facilitate an engineer-led course in Amsterdam for both Vault administrators and developers. Learn how to operationalize vault and write applications that utilize its secrets.
