HashiCorp Vault is a robust system designed for managing secrets and encryption with a focus on identity-based access control. Secrets encompass a wide range of sensitive information, including API encryption keys, passwords, and certificates. Vault ensures secure encryption services with stringent access control through authentication and authorization methods. Users can interact with Vault via a user-friendly UI, a command-line interface (CLI), or an HTTP API. It provides a secure, auditable, and controlled environment for storing and managing secrets.

In the context of modern systems, the need for secure access to various secrets, such as database credentials, external API keys, and service-oriented architecture credentials, is prevalent. Determining who accesses specific secrets can be challenging, especially in platform-specific scenarios. Vault offers a solution by introducing features like key rotation, secure storage, and comprehensive audit logs, which would be difficult to achieve with a custom-built solution. In essence, Vault plays a crucial role in enhancing security and governance for sensitive data.”
