Shownotes for episode 3, published Wednesday, 31 May 2016

This 3rd episode of SysCast revolves around secrets: managing API keys, passwords, tokens, … with Hashicorp’s Vault.

I’m joined by Seth Vargo from Hashicorp who explains how Vault works, its internals, different use cases, key management & rollover and lots of interesting details about Vault itself.

If you’re storing your passwords inside your git repository or managing them by hand in yaml/ini files, listen to this episode to learn how Vault can help store credentials more securely and automate secret management for you.

Once again, if you have a minute or 2, leave a rating on iTunes.
