Add military-level security to any project

Gather around, lovers of encryption – today we learn about HashiCorp Vault, which is software for storing secrets of any kind. Put simply, Vault is secret management software, which nowadays is a critical part of most applications and organisations, because you don’t want your sensitive information to wander around in plain text format without being protected by reliable security mechanisms and services. The good thing is that Vault can be integrated with existing software such as databases, value stores and streaming applications, which makes things easier.

The first thing to remember is that the priority of Vault is the security of your data. When working with sensitive data, you should know what you are doing for two main reasons. The first is that you should keep sensitive data private, but also accessible only by the right people. The second is that you should remember where and what data you stored – sounds obvious, but not when when you have lots of data.

Lastly, keep in mind that Vault is complex software, composed of many different subsystems. However, this tutorial will present down-to-earth examples that will help you get started with in your projects.
