Harshicorp Vault

Harshicorp Vault is a solution to secure store and get sensitive information. It has a lot of features, like One Time Password, many auth methods, policies, temp tokens, etc.

For this solution will be used a basic auth with token (no refreshment) to query vault, simple Key/Value will store keys/passwords. Of course it can and should be improved, like using policies, temp tokens, other auth methods, lease duration, etc. You can (and should) also limit requests for secrets based on IP addresses.

So, this is the first post on a series of automation posts that will demonstrate how to build a Full-Stack automation. In fact it can be used to automate any service, but we'll focus and use network as an example.

This first post will cover the idea of the solution, its architecture, components and other useful information. I'll try my best to not use marketing or specific definitions like SD-WAN, SDN, SaaS, IaaS, etc.
