For a cloud security strategy to truly work, secrets for applications and systems (API keys, database credentials, TLS certificates, etc.) need to be managed through a centralized secrets automation platform. Static IP-based solutions don't scale in dynamic environments with frequently changing applications and machines.
Many organizations are using RedHat OpenShift for their containerized environment, however this often presents new challenges when it comes to security, secrets management, and compliance. That's why Red Hat and HashiCorp are working together, allowing organizations to leverage the OpenShift / Kubernetes API and Service Accounts for authenticating pods, while simplifying the management of secrets through native integration with Vault.
In this webinar we'll introduce Vault, it's open source and paid features, and show two different architectures for Vault & OpenShift integration.
