Integrating HashiCorp Vault and K8s


That seems to be very different from typical a 12-factor apps setup when an app would simply read configuration and secrets from environment variables, isn’t it? Should you write a library to encapsulate this logic? Or is there an SDK available? There is a way to address all questions above with little to no code changes at all!

I’m going to demo it and then go into the nitty-gritty details of its implementation so you can repeat the same steps at home or work.

HashiCorp is the leader in multi-cloud infrastructure automation software. The HashiCorp software suite enables organizations to adopt consistent workflows to provision, secure, connect, and run any infrastructure for any application. HashiCorp open source tools Vagrant, Packer, Terraform, Vault, Consul, Nomad, Boundary, and Waypoint are downloaded tens of millions of times each year and are broadly adopted by the Global 2000. Enterprise versions of these products enhance the open source tools with features that promote collaboration, operations, governance, and multi-data center functionality.
