Securely Managing Secrets with Vault

Have you ever deployed to production with a database password stored in plain text? Have you encrypted your database password, but then did not know how to store the encryption key securely? Are you certain you encrypted the password properly?

HashiCorp Vault is completely free and open source solution to securely manage secrets. It supports secret storage, key rolling, revocation of secrets, auditing, and much more.

In this talk Rob will demonstrate how Vault can make securely managing secrets easy. He will then demonstrate how Spring Vault can remove boilerplate code necessary to work with Vault.
