With the recent release of Vault 1.2, we are excited to introduce several new 1.2 feature guides on HashiCorp Learn to help you understand how they work.
- Database Static Roles and Credential Rotation: This guide demonstrates the enhancements made to the database secrets engine.
- KMIP Secrets Engine: This guide demonstrates the KMIP Secrets Engine which was introduced in Vault 1.2.
- Vault HA Cluster with Integrated Storage: This guide demonstrates Vault 1.2’s new Integrated Storage option, which has been introduced as Technical Preview.
Now Vault’s database secrets engine can manage existing database credentials. This allows users to delegate the task of periodic password rotation to Vault.
This guide walks you through the steps to define a static role and configure its password rotation cycle.
NOTE: KMIP secrets engine is a Vault Enterprise feature.
Vault server can now serve as a KMIP (Key Management Interoperability Protocol) server.
This guide walks through the steps to enable and configure the KMIP secrets engine.
NOTE: Vault’s Integrated Storage is a Technology Preview feature and not suitable for deployment in production.
Vault’s integrated storage provides an option to use the persistent storage directly built into Vault which makes the operational tasks simpler. If Vault encounters an outage, Vault is the only product you need to diagnose.
This guide demonstrates the deployment of a Vault cluster using the integrated storage.
