Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) provides a way to verify authenticity and guarantee secure communication between applications. Setting up your own PKI infrastructure can be a complex and very manual process. Vault PKI allows users to dynamically generate X.509 certificates quickly and on demand. Vault PKI can streamline distributing TLS certificates and allows users to create PKI certificates with a single command. Vault PKI reduces overhead around the usual manual process of generating a private key and CSR, submitting to a CA, and waiting for a verification and signing process to complete, while additionally providing an authentication and authorization mechanism to validate as well. See below for getting started guides and documentation.
Vault Open Source addresses the technical complexity of managing secrets by leveraging trusted identities across distributed infrastructure and clouds.
