Vault Dynamic Database Credentials with Cassandra
This short tutorial walks through the customization of Cassandra in order to use Vault's dynamic secrets capabilities.
Apache Cassandra can be a challenge to properly configure, and Vault is no exception. This short tutorial walks through the customization of Cassandra so dynamic credentials work. This demo by John Dohoney, Jr. of HashiCorp will show Vault working with Cassandra using cqsql to demonstrate the dynamic credential capability, and why this is a great idea to reduce data attack surface area using Cassandra.
The presentation was part of the first HashiTalks online event—A 24-hour continuous series of presentations from the worldwide HashiCorp User Group (HUG) community and from HashiCorp engineers as well. The event took place from February 21-22, 2019.
