Hashicorp's Vault makes it easy to apply the best practices of credential management, while also reducing the complexity of your DevOps infrastructure.
Managing secrets and distributing credentials are hard to do in practice. Engineers often take shortcuts and jepordize security as a result. Businesses don't have insights into these vulnerabilities, but find out in forensic investigations after a successful attack.
With ephemeral resources in the cloud, maintaining security over credential management is more difficult. The nature of the cloud leaves us with more constraints and less wiggle room for leakage.
Vault makes best practices for these workflows more accessible and reduces the complexity of your DevOps infrastructure.
Vault allows us to scale best-practices for handling secrets to the dynamic infrastructure of the cloud.

Vault tightly controls access to secrets and encryption keys, validating client identity against trusted authentication backends. As a platform, Vault is modular and uses a plugin architecture.
Vault ships with numerous secret providers and authentication backends, making it extremely flexible and capable of integrating with a wide variety of existing systems.
Vault provides support for a wide range of static and dynamic types of secrets. The engines store, generate or encrypt data. The secret engines integrate with 3rd party systems (such as Redis, Postgres, AWS, active directory, SSH, and more) to provide API tokens, generate credentials, and encrypt data.
These are plugins "mounted" in the system to be available through the Vault API, and which offer a specific set of actions on a type of secret.
Vault provides integration flexibility by supporting a wide range of backends that associate identity and policies to user requests.
Vault keeps a detailed log of all operations on the Vault. These logs may be sent to one or more devices, including files, syslog, and raw TCP/UDP/UNIX sockets.
While revolutionary, Vault introduces fundamental changes to deployment systems and architecture. Vault has a learning curve.
